Abstract

Spanish Abstract: El presente artículo analiza determinantes (individuales y de contexto) que inciden en el uso de servicios de atención en salud por parte de las madres antes, durante y después del parto en el Litoral Pacifico Colombiano. Para este objetivo se construyen indicadores estadísticos y se estiman modelos de regresión binaria a partir de microdatos de la Encuesta Nacional de Demografía y Salud 2005 y del Registro Especial de Prestadores de Servicios de Salud del Ministerio de la Protección Social de Colombia. Los resultados muestran que los factores que más inciden en el uso de los servicios de salud materna en su orden son: la afiliación a un régimen de seguridad social en salud, el orden de nacimiento de los hijos, el nivel de educación y el lugar de residencia de la madre.

English Abstract: This article analyzes determinants (individual and text related) that affect the use of health services by women before, during and after birth, on the Colombian Pacific coast. For this purpose, statistical indicators are designed, and binary regression models are estimated from microdata from the National Demographic and Health Survey 2005, and the Special Register of Health Care Providers of the Colombian Ministry of Social Protection. The results show that the factors that most affect the use of maternal health services are, in order: affiliation to a social security health regime, the order in which the children are born, the level of education and the mother's place of residence.
