Malnutrition of children under 5 years of age in Colombia presents very important variations. Departments such as Guajira on the Atlantic coast, Chocó on the Pacific coast and the departments of Orinoquia and Amazonia report a high number of mortality children due to malnourishment. Poverty is one of the important determinants of this phenomenon. On the other hand, there is a coincidence between the map of premature births and poverty. While these correlations are known, there has been no systematic analysis that take into account the spatial distribution of the phenomena and their relationship with other variables demographic and socioeconomic. Additionally, there is no information on how the entry in The Mary Law (Law 1822 of 2017), which compensates the mothers of children for their time, is in force. preterm infants, interacted with the different socio-economic patterns. The question that this project aims to solve is how it is characterized, in the last 5 years, geographically and demographically prematurity and LBP?
