Armenian Health Care Ministry held a round table discussion in
connection with the International Day of Children Defense. In 2003
Armenian Government approved 2003-2015′ strategic Document on Mother
and Infant Health Protection.

Under forecast of the strategic program on poverty eradication during
2004-2015 budget allocations for health system will double and funding
for Mother and Infant Health Protection program will increase.

Statistics show infant mortality reduced. 540 children died in 2002,
and 524 in 2003. 3670 children were born during 2003.

There are unsettled problems in the health system. “Maternal and
infant mortality rate and abortion indices are still high”, Karine
Saribekyan, head of Health Ministry Department for Mother and Infant
Health Protection, says.

She hopes all the problems will be solved by 2015.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
