A WHO seminar on “Improvement of the Quality of Antenatal and Postnatal
Aid and Redirection System” is taking place in Yerevan.

Representatives of 11 countries of WHO European Region as well as
Russia and development partner organizations participate in the
seminar.

At a press briefing before the seminar, Head of the WHO Country
Office in Armenia Tatul Hakobyan said that maternal mortality and
infant illness rates have decreased in Armenia in the past years.

“Of course we should work to achieve further reduction of those rates,
but undoubtedly we have positive trends,” he said.

Asked what he can say about the comparison of maternal mortality and
infant illness rates of Armenia with those of our neighboring counties,
Mr Hakobyan said that in this respect, Armenia is in a more favorable
condition compared to its neighbors.
