Save the Children highly assesses healthcare system in Uzbekistan



On 6 September 2011 Save the Children, international organization on protection of children's rights, has published a new report titled “Health Workers Reach Index”.

The report was timed to the forthcoming discussions in the framework of the next session of the UN General Assembly in New York on reviewing the progress in ensuring the health of children and women.

The paper analyses the situation in the children's health systems in 161 countries on three indicators:

1) a measure of health worker density;

2) the percentage of children receiving three doses of the vaccine for diphtheria, whooping cough and tetanus;

3) skilled birth attendance rate.

Uzbekistan in this index is placed at 9th position (Germany - 10, Russia - 11, France - 12, UK – 14, USA - 15, Latvia – 41). Among the top ten countries with the best performance are seven European countries (Switzerland (1), Finland (2), Ireland (3), Norway (4), Belarus (5), Denmark (6), Sweden (7) as well as Cuba (8).

Full report of Save the Children is here:

According to the Ministry of Health of Uzbekistan, during 20 years of Independence of our country the child and maternal mortality rates fell three and two times respectively, while the life expectancy for women climbed up to 75 from 67 years.
