“Marat Shoranov, first vice minister of health, indicated the increase in maternal mortality in all regions. According to him, the reasons for the negative results were insufficient staffing of the obstetric service, incomplete provision of medical equipment, insufficient qualifications of specialists at all levels, poor logistics of medical care for pregnant women and children in remote areas, outflow of personnel to private clinics, ” reads the report.
