We think that the rate of maternal mortality in Colombia is too hight because the State does not guarantee the right health care to Colombian women. In this way, the structure and resources distribution established by the policies on sexual and reproductive health have not reflected the population necessities, specially in the case of young mothers left aside by the social security system. En este artículo se realiza un diagnóstico crítico respecto a la situación de la mortalidad materna en Colombia, teniendo en cuenta algunos de los indicadores más actualizados del fenómeno y las medidas de política pública implementadas en la última década para reducir su prevalencia. La tesis que aquí se presenta es que los altos índices de mortalidad materna en Colombia están relacionados con la no garantía por parte del Estado del derecho a la salud de las colombianas. En este sentido, la política de salud sexual y reproductiva no ha reflejado en su estructura y asignación de recursos las necesidades de la población, especialmente adolescente, quedando marginada del sistema de seguridad social en salud. 2010-05-18 2010-05-18 2014-07-09T15:55:59Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion http://revistas.urosario.edu.co/index.php/revsalud/article/view/520 http://repository.urosario.edu.co/handle/10336/7412 spa http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess application/pdf Universidad del Rosario reponame:Repositorio Institucional EdocUR instname:Universidad del Rosario Revista Ciencias de la Salud; Vol. 5, núm. 2 (2007) Revista Ciencias de la Salud; Vol. 5, núm. 2 (2007) Revista Ciencias de la Salud; Vol. 5, núm. 2 (2007) 2145-4507 1692-7273
