  • The Zenú indigenous people is in its great majority in the regiment of San Andres de Sotavento in Cordova. This population conserves its own traditions and beliefs, they are affiliated in their great majority to the subsidized regime, to the Indigenous Manexka EPS. In the analysis of the cases of maternal mortality reported by EPSI from 2014 to 2016, non-attendance to prenatal control program activities was identified as a variable present in 30% of cases; In response to which the need arises to propose new guidelines for prenatal care adjusted to the customs and needs of this community; In order to positively impact program assistance. The objective of this study is to propose differential prenatal care strategies for the Zenú indigenous people. The prenatal care model was initially evaluated at the time of the study, and three possible options for differential activities were considered, which were evaluated through surveys, according to the perspective of 3 groups: Maternals attending the program, professionals Involved in care and midwives. As a result, adhesion determinants were identified; Such as: travel times to appointments, road conditions and lack of money to be transported. It was identified that indigenous mothers do not feel their customs are violated by the current model of care; but they do see, in the activities carried out inside the shelter, and together with midwives, an alternative that would contribute to improve the attendance to prenatal care.
