Background: Colombia is one of the countries with the widest levels of socioeconomic and health inequalities. Bogota, its capital, faces serious problems of poverty, social disparities and access to health services. A Primary Health Care (PHC) strategy was implemented in 2004 to improve health care and to address the social determinants of such inequalities. This study aimed to evaluate the contribution of the PHC strategy to reducing inequalities in child health outcomes in Bogota. Methods: An ecological analysis with localities as the unit of analysis was carried out.
