Abstract: There were 20 deaths under 5 years of age of pneumonia registered in Cali in 4 local counties between January 1997 and February 1998. In a case-control study we examined the relationship with biological factors (former diseases, immunization schemes, breast feeding, well child clinic attendance) social factors (socioeconomic level, income, dwelling units characteristics) and those factors related with health services accesibity (inscription and attendance to medical clinics, length of time for attention and fulfillment of recommendations). There were significant findings among protective factors like attendande to well child clinic (OR: 0.24, CI 0.03-0.71), full immunization scheme (OR: 6.76 0.01-0.22) dwelling units conditions and good income (OR: 6.76 CI: 1.65-29.56). Accesibility to medical attention was not significant. In conclusion mortality due to pneumonia is a social event in relation with poverty.
