Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Many countries have reported an increase in the death rate from bronchial asthma. Evaluation of the situation in Jamaica was undertaken to see if the trend is similar to that reported from elsewhere by analysing deaths for the period 1980 to 1989. There was an increase in the death rate during the period studied, most marked in females in rural areas. Most of the deaths occurred outside medical facilities. The reasons for these trends are not clear.
