569 IMPACTO ECONÓMICO DE LA DESNUTRICIÓN CRÓNICA, AGUDA Y GLOBAL EN EL PERÚ Lorena Alcázar 1,a , Diego Ocampo 1,b , Lucio Huamán-Espino 2,c , Juan Pablo Aparco 2,d RESUMEN Objetivos . Estimar el impacto económico de la desnutrición crónica, aguda y global en el Perú. Materiales y métodos . El presente estudio estimó el impacto económico de la desnutrición infantil en dos horizontes temporales (incidental retrospectiva y prospectiva) para el año 2011, considerando los costos asociados a la desnutrición en salud, educación y productividad para la economía peruana. Se combinó la información proveniente de la Encuesta Demográfica de Salud Familiar, la Encuesta Nacional de Hogares, el Censo de Población y Vivienda de 2007 y la información presupuestal pública, así como estimados de los riesgos a los que un niño está expuesto a causa de la desnutrición que padece en sus primeros años de vida. Resultados . Se halló que a nivel nacional en la perspectiva retrospectiva el costo de la desnutrición infantil para el 2011, fue de 10 999 millones de soles, equivalentes al 2,2% del PBI de ese mismo año. Los costos prospectivos a nivel nacional, de quienes al 2011 tienen entre 0 y 59 meses, alcanzaron los 4505 millones de nuevos soles y representan el 0,9% del PBI del año 2011. La mayor parte de los costos provienen de las pérdidas de productividad en ambos casos. Además, la desnutrición afecta mucho más a la sierra y selva peruana. Conclusiones . El impacto económico de la desnutrición infantil representa una parte significativa del PBI, por lo que es necesario continuar invirtiendo equitativamente en su prevención con intervenciones de probada efectividad.

ECONOMIC IMPACT OF CHRONIC, ACUTE AND GLOBAL MALNUTRITION IN PERU ABSTRACT Objectives. To estimate the economic impact of chronic, acute and global malnutrition in Peru. Materials and methods. This study, through an econometric model, estimated the economic impact of child malnutrition in two time horizons (incidental retrospective and prospective) during 2011, considering malnutrition-associated costs of health, education and productivity for the Peruvian economy. Information collected is a combination of data coming from the Demographic Survey of Family Health, the National Survey of Homes, the 2007 Census of Population and Housing, and public budget information, as well as estimates of risks a child is exposed to due to malnutrition during their first years of life. Results. Nationwide it was found that in the perspective retrospective, the cost of child malnutrition in 2011 was 10,999 million soles, which was equal to 2.2% of GDP for that same year. Prospective costs nationwide, of those who by 2011 were 0 to 59 months, reached 4,505 million soles and represented 0.9% of GDP in 2011. Most cases stem from losses of productivity in both cases. Moreover, malnutrition affects much more both the Andes and jungle regions. Conclusions. The economic impact of child malnutrition

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
