MOSCOW, May 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Infant mortality in Russia in the first quarter of 2014 decreased by 10.5% from 2012, Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova said.
“We have reached the levels we were planning to achieve in 2016-2020,” she said at a meeting on the implementation of President Vladimir Putin’s executive orders signed in May 2012.
The minister said emergency specialised and complex healthcare services had for the first time leveled off in cities and rural areas in 2013. However, she admitted problems in the provision of daily primary health and sanitary services.
Skvortsova said more than 12,000 young doctors had contracted to work in rural areas under a government programme, including 4,300 in 2013.
