The article presents the quantitative and qualitative results of a study on news content, published in 11 Mexican newspapers, related to addiction in Mexican women during the years 1997, 1998 and 1999. The analysis shows the extent to which the news was covered and identifies the outlets presenting the coverage. The source for the study was the BuIletin of Journalistic Information in Health, published by the Metropolitan Autonomous University, Xochimilco. The findings indicate that the press published scarce information on this problem and that it focussed more on disseminating information on the number of addicts, deaths, and harm to the fetus during pregnancy than explaining the causes of addiction and how to prevent it.
