Resumen

GARCIA MILIAN, Ana Julia; LOPEZ VERDE, Lisbet; PRIA BARROS, María del Carmen  y  LEON CABRERA, Pablo. Drug consumption and living conditions. Rev Cubana Salud Pública [online]. 2016, vol.42, n.3, pp.442-450. ISSN 0864-3466.

In Cuba, drug production is managed by the state. The drug industry works in close coordination with the national health care system and manufactures and distributes drugs according to the epidemiological picture existing in the country. However, the problem of drug consumption by the society is complex. In this regard, this paper was intended to substantiate the need of analyzing the drug consumption patterns according to the living conditions of the population. A documentary and content analysis research of the national and international literature dealing with this topic was made. It identified the lack of publications dealing with drug consumption according to the living conditions of the population in the Cuban setting. Learning about the consumption and its determinants has an impact on the health quality of the population and allows care providers in particular and health system in general to develop corrective actions to attain performances in line with the meaning of drugs in the contemporary society.

Palabras clave : Drug consumption; living conditions; inequalities; social determinants.
