A rating of the most hazardous fatal diseases has been made in Kazakhstan, Tengrinews.kz reports citing the press-service of Kazakhstan Healthcare Ministry.

Based on mortality rates in Kazakhstan, the Ministry tagged circulatory diseases the country's biggest medical problem. These diseases morbidity has increased by 7 percent over the last 5 years: 2,454 sick per 100 thousand people versus 2,273 patients in 2008. The Ministry pointed out that 20 stroke centers had been opened for treatment of patients with acute strokes in the country's regions. Besides, the plan is to open another 28 centers until the end of the year. "As a result of these measures, we can see a clear trend of decrease of mortality from circulatory diseases from 416 patients who died in 2008 to 252 in 2012," the Ministry said.

Oncology is ranked the second main cause of people's mortality in Kazakhstan. The numbers of malignant tumors has grown over the past 5 years from 183 in 2008 to 1,901 cases of oncological diseases per 100 thousand people in 2012. "To improve oncological treatment, we have been focusing on early detection of malignant tumors through preventive checkups of target groups and use of the progressive diagnostics and treatment methods," the press-service wrote. As a result, the Ministry noted a decreasing dynamics in mortality from malignant tumors: 100 died per 100 thousand people in 2012 versus 115 people who died in 2008.

There is also a decrease in mortality from accidents, injuries and intoxications from 126 dead in 2008 to 97 dead per 100 thousand people in 2012.

Overall morbidity rate in Kazakhstan has decreased 37% over the past 3 years. In 2012 it was 18.7% less than in 2011.
