cholera epidemic, Peruvians, infant mortality rate, average life expectancy, live births

In 2002 the average life expectancy at birth in Peru was 73 years for women and 68 years for men; the infant mortality rate was 38 per 1,000 live births. Although the government has made some progress in improving medical facilities, sanitation remains inadequate, and a cholera epidemic in 1991 killed more than 1,000 Peruvians and sickened another 150,000.
