HERRERO, María Belén  e  CARBONETTI, Adrián. Tuberculosis mortality in Argentina during the twentieth century. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2013, vol.20, n.2, pp.521-536. ISSN 0104-5970.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-597020130002000009.

The aim of this article is to provide an analysis of the mortality curve for tuberculosis in Argentina throughout the twentieth century, from 1911 to 2007. Using data from various official sources, the mortality rate is divided into historical phases and sub-periods, in order to show how the behavior of tuberculosis mortality depended on the historical moment. Thus, the progress of the disease is linked to the methods that were developed to combat it. The fluctuations in mortality are analyzed by regions of the country, on the assumption that mortality varied according to economic and social conditions and the development of healthcare.

Palavras-chave : Argentina; mortality; tuberculosis; twentieth century.
