Infant Mortality Decreases in Western Cuba
Monday, July 9, 2018



Havana.- The western Cuban province of Pinar del Rio has reported positive results in terms of children's health, with an infant mortality rate of 2.3 deaths per every 1,000 live births.

According to experts, this result responds to the efforts made by medical personnel, so Pinar del Rio is behind Granma, Cienfuegos, Las Tunas and Isla de la Juventud in that indicator.

The municipalities of Sandino, Mantua, Viñales, La Palma, Consolacion del Sur, San Luis and San Juan y Martínez did not report any deaths during the first six months of 2018.

In order to guarantee this trend, doctors, specialists, nurses in primary and secondary care, maternity homes, genetics centers and hospitals have been working hard.

The human milk bank Gotita de Vida, one of the first in Cuba, also operates in the province, supplying food to children in critical condition, underweight or who cannot be nursed by their mothers.
