Kazakhstan's infant mortality 18% over Europe

Kazakhstan’s infant and maternal mortality is 18 percent higher than in Central and Eastern European countries with similar GDP per capita, Tengrinews.kz reports citing the representative office of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Kazakhstan.

According to Kazakhstan Healthcare Ministry, in January-September 2012 infant mortality rate made 13.9 percent per every 1,000 live-born children and maternal mortality rate was 14.3 percent per 100,000 of live-born children. But it is still an improvement compared to the 2010 when infant mortality rate was 28 percent per 1,000 live-born children. The rate has almost halved in two years.

Over 280 thousand babies were born in Kazakhstan in January-September 2012, according to Vice-Minister of Healthcare of Kazakhstan Erik Baizhunusov. This is 13 thousand more than last year. "Baby-boom is continuing in Kazakhstan," he said. Currently the population of Kazakhstan exceeds 16.8 million people.

UNICEF has launch a charity project called to reduce infant mortality rate and provide a healthy life start to all children of preschool age will be implemented in East-Kazakhstan Oblast.

The program will cover around 5,000 children aged 0 to 3 years, as well as 10,000 parents. The plan is that around 16 million tenge ($106 thousand) will be allocated for education of the healthcare personnel and parents on prenatal, patrimonial social work and care for children under 3 years of age. Besides, the project will provide equipment and materials required for children in maternity hospitals.

The UN Children's Fund will publish and distribute free of charge the books called Manual for future mothers based on WHO/UNICEF recommendations, Calendar of child evolution with consultations on care and prevention of injuries, poisoning, materials for care and nutrition of tender aged children, Tables and graphs for monitoring growth and evolution of tender aged children and other guides for obstetrician-gynecologists, neonatologists and pediatricians.

The project is being implemented in partnership with the Healthcare Ministry, Kus Zholy charity fund and is sponsored by KazKommertsBank. The bank and UNICEF has provided 16 million tenge (108 thousand dollars) each for the project.
