Nutrición y Pobreza : Política Pública Basada en Evidencia (Spanish)

This book seeks to contribute to the improvement of public policies in the area of nutrition, particularly in the policies directed to the poor. To achieve this, the book presents actual information on the state of nutrition in the Mexican population and analyzes the evidence to show the correlation of various programs on the struggle against poverty. In addition, this book shows that there have been important advances in the reduction of mal-nutrition and a closing of the gap in health between the various social strata of the population. This analysis has five sections. The first section deals with the state of nutrition in Mexico in the last five years. The second part describes briefly the evolution of nutrition policies in Mexico. The third section presents an analysis that deals with the relationship between the social programs and the potential effects on the state of nutrition of the population. The fourth section presents an evaluation of the impact of three of main programs of social development: Oportunidades, PASL and PAL. The last section discuses the future agenda of the design of the social policy.
