This book, written in Spanish, was primarily intended for use in Argentina, but it should prove interesting to readers in other countries as well. All of the usual procedures for the care and training of infants and children and for the establishment of proper hospitals and clinics to care for them are considered. Comparative figures for population and for deaths in the various sections of Argentina for the years between 1914 and 1934 are indicated on a map. This book presents a concise and practical pediatric program for a nation.
