Resumen

BOROWY, Iris. Crisis as opportunity: International health work during the economic depression. Dynamis [online]. 2008, vol.28, pp.29-51. ISSN 0211-9536.

The economic depression of the 1930s represented the most important economic and social crisis of its time. Surprisingly, its effect on health did not show in available morbidity and mortality rates. In 1932, the League of Nations Health Organisation embarked on a six-point program addressing statistical methods of measuring the effect and its influence on mental health and nutrition and establishing ways to safeguard public health through more efficient health systems. Some of these studies resulted in considerations of general relevance beyond crisis management. Unexpectedly, the crisis offered an opportunity to reconsider key concepts of individual and public health.

Palabras clave : Economic depression; League of Nations; public health; nutrition; health system.
