From knowing that the behaviour of the maternal-child program indexes was relevant, a descriptive, retrospective and cross-sectional study was performed during 2001-2002 at "27 de Noviembre" Teaching General Hospital, Consolación del Sur. The arithmetic simple method (percentage) was used for comparison. Most of births occurred (437 cases) in year 2001, prevailing the morbility-mortality rate between 12.3-12.6. The low birth weight was evident in 5 in the year 2001. The two fetal deaths occurred in the first year of the study (0.4). In 2001 it was observed the occurrence of 18 newborn remissions. The obstetrics remissions ranged between 405 and 427 cases. The number of cases of gynecology attended at the Emergency Room was higher in 2001 (1775 cases). In 2002, it was attended the highest percentage of obstetrics cases (1257). The highest occupational index in Pediatrics was observed in 2001 (39.7 %). Most of the children were vaccinated with BCG and HB vaccine in 2001 (428 and 433 respectively). It is suggested to spread the current research to the municipality in order to assess the behaviour of the Maternal-Child Program Indexes due to the repercussion in the hospital indicators.
