The Chaco Area Reproductive
Ecology (C.A.R.E.) Program, established in 1998, aims at advancing our understanding of
the interaction between reproductive patterns and the ecological context in
populations of the Gran Chaco region of Argentina
· To study the impact of the drastic lifestyle changes that the indigenous populations are experiencing on their fertility.
· To investigate the effect of transculturation on the health status of Chacoan indigenous populations.
· To explore the influence of child rearing practices on infant and children’s growth and development.
