In-depth analysis of ethnic births in Colombia

A case study of indigenous populations in the Chocó department

The following exercise was carried out in order to generate alternative analysis for statistical production and demographic monitoring, and to propose solutions to the shortcomings in the coverage of vital statistics in the regions. It also puts two issues of significance in Colombia under the microscope: the challenge of monitoring birth dynamics in indigenous populations, and the contribution of traditional birth attendants in assisting childbirth.
