Today, during his working trip to South Kazakhstan region, Prime Minister Bakytzhan Sagintayev visited the Regional Perinatal Center №4, where he familiarized himself with the current activities and the material-and-technical infrastructure of the medical facility.

Bakytzhan Sagintayev visited the intensive care and aggressive medical treatment units for adults, as well as the children's intensive care unit and familiarized himself with their operation. In turn, Doctor Gulbanu Syzdykova, who is employed at the perinatal center, informed the Prime Minister about the work of the facility, the contingent of pregnant women, parturient women and newborns.

The Regional Perinatal Center №4 was built at the expense of private investments in 2011 and has units for 155 beds. At present, the facility employs more than 520 people, and receives about 8000 births annually. The center is one of the largest perinatal centers in the region outfitted with the latest medical equipment.

It is worth noting that one of the main issues in this field is the prevention of maternal and child mortality, as well as the prevention of diseases in the early stages of their detection. Thanks to the implementation of state and sectoral programs in the medical field, statistics over the past decade show a steady decline in mortality, but the implementation of comprehensive measures aimed at preventing such cases is also continued in the Densaulyk Healthcare Development State Program for 2016-2019.

For reference:

In 2017, 54.3 billion tenge is allocated to finance the region’s healthcare system. 36.6 billion tenge was applied as of September 1 of this year, or 98.5% of the plan for the reporting period. In particular, funds are allocated for developing healthcare facilities, strengthening the material-and-technical base and carrying out major repairs of a number of healthcare facilities.
