Infant Mortality Rate Decreases in Holguin
Monday, July 17, 2017

Havana.- The healthcare system in the eastern Cuban province of Holguin reported a decrease in the infant mortality rate to 3.5 deaths per every 1,000 live births so far this year.

Experts with the Mother-Child Program in the province pointed out that the indicator remains in zero in the municipalities of Gibara, Rafael Freyre, Calixto García and Sagua de Tánamo.

It should be said that the province maintains the follow-up of pregnant women with high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus and risk of miscarriage, among other health problems.

In addition, a multidisciplinary group made up of gynecologists, pediatricians, psychologists and nutritionists takes care of children born with low weight.

In 2016, Holguin reported an infant mortality rate of 3.8 deaths per every 1,000 live births, among the lowest in Cuba. This year's predictions aim at a reduction of that indicator.
