DROVETTA, Raquel Irene. Female morbimortality in Puna jujeña: the potential for verbal autopsy. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2008, vol.15, suppl., pp.257-268. ISSN 1678-4758.

The article proposes a plan for exploring the processes of women's health-illness-care in peasant communities in Puna jujeña, in northern Argentina. The phase in question runs from the early 1990s to the present time, a period concurrent with a deepening of the socioeconomic crisis that has impacted all spheres, including healthcare. One way of approaching the issues affecting this population is to analyze female morbimortality as related to reproductive concerns and to ascertain the socioeconomic, cultural, ethnic, gender, and other factors involved in morbid processes and their development. Data was collected by verbal autopsy, a qualitative method that allows us to reconstruct processes preceding death, in the eyes of the closest family members. This study is part of doctoral research being undertaken in Agrarian Social Studies at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina.
