Slide6 l.jpg

Models of demographic transition and developing countries

  • Heterogeneity of social and economic development among countries and over different periods of time leads to distinguish:

  • Classical (or Western) model

    • mostly economical and social factors, started in 18th-19th century

  • Accelerated model (Japan, Eastern Europe)

    • started later but evolved quicker

  • Delayed (or contemporary) model (most developing countries)

    • rapid decrease in overall mortality (mainly  child deaths) but less (delayed) decrease in birth rates, hence explosive population growth

    • important role of public health and medical interventions (treatment, contraception, abortion)

Slide7 l.jpg

Models of demographic transition and developing countries

Mortality and birth rates driven to various extents by socio-economic development, public health & medical interventions

IUMSP-GCT



Determinants of fertility rates l.jpg

High fertility countries

Economic needs of self-sufficient agrarian communities

Little striving for advancement

High child mortality

Religious doctrines and community sanctions

'Individual' not important

Childbearing is major source of prestige and economic support for women

Low fertility

Cost of children, earning power down

Reduced child mortality

Family and community less important for mobile city dwellers

Factory employment makes individual responsible for his/her own accomplishment

Education and rational point of view become important

Later marriage, migration, abortion, contraception

Determinants of fertility rates

Some issues related to socioeconomic transition l.jpg
Some issues related to socioeconomic transition sample of 9254 adults of Dar es Salaam, 1999)

Equity

  • access to information & health care related to RF and NCDs

  • costs related to adopting healthy behaviors/lifestyles

  • costs of treatment for chronic NCDs

    Socioeconomic differences within populations

  • pockets of underdevelopment within western countries

  • large variations in development within developing countries

    Forward and backward dynamic of development

  • underdevelopment can follow phases of development (e.g. FSE)

Health care transition l.jpg
Health care transition sample of 9254 adults of Dar es Salaam, 1999)

  • Availability of preventive and curative services

    • immunization, contraception, maternal/child care, antibiotics

  • Large influence on the dynamics of demographic transition

    • e.g. ‘delayed transition model’ in many developing countries (decrease in infant mortality not followed by proportionate decrease in birth/fertility rates: population increase ++)

  • Large heterogeneity between populations due to costs and efficiency in allocation of health services
