Resumo

GONZALEZ-RABAGO, Yolanda  e  MARTIN, Unai. Health and determinants of health in second generations of international immigrants: social inequalities in health since childhood?. Gac Sanit [online]. 2019, vol.33, n.2, pp.156-161.  Epub 21-Out-2019. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2017.10.007.

Objective

To analyse the social inequalities in health between children and youth population of an immigrant origin from low-income countries and those of native origin in the Basque Country.

Method

Cross-sectional descriptive study using data from the Basque Country Health Survey 2013. Variables of health, behaviours and life conditions were used as the outcome variables. Prevalence ratios were calculated using robust Poisson models.

Results

The children with immigrant parents had poorer self-rated health, a higher prevalence of obesity, spent more hours in sedentary activities and lived in households with greater economic difficulties. The differences persisted even after adjusting for social class and educational level of parents.

Conclusions

A migrant background is a highly relevant axis of health inequalities and has an influence beyond a generation. Given this reality, it is necessary to implement effective and suitable measures to ensure life with good health conditions and to reduce social inequalities in health, not only in childhood but through the entire life cycle.
