Epidemia y perplejidades médicas: Uruguay, 1918--1919 (2011)


This article seeks to establish the type of connection that existed between the responses implemented by the Uruguayan state and dominant medical knowledge in the form of health policies during the influenza epidemic of 1918-1919. The problem can be split into two aspects: What were the most salient lines of medical thought on confronting the influenza epidemic of 1918-1919? And how was medical knowledge linked to the actions undertaken by the Uruguayan state? Answers will be sought through an indicial inquiry for two reasons. Firstly, the sources consulted present a very high degree of dispersion and heterogeneity and secondly, the writer is in an exploratory phase of the problem.
