\"YEAR OF HEALTHY MOTHER AND CHILD\" TO EXTEND THE SCOPE OF CONSISTENT WORK TO STRENGTHEN NATION\'S GENE POOL
President Islam Karimov\'s initiative to declare 2016 in Uzbekistan \"Year of healthy mother and child\" finds broad support among the public and political circles of foreign countries.
In particular, president of the Polish Women\'s League (PWL) Aldona Michalak shared her assessments for maternal and child health measures undertaken in our country in an interviews with Jahon I.A.:
- It is gratifying that in Uzbekistan the issue of health of mothers and children was elevated to the rank of state policy. All taken steps in this direction are of particular importance and significance in current \"Year of healthy mother and child.\"
This initiative is a logical continuation of effortsm which are conducted under the leadership of President Islam Karimov, to improve the socio-economic potential of families, support and protection of citizens\' health. This is evidenced by the creation of favorable conditions for women\'s work at home, which allows them to receive the financial income and take care of children. Undoubtedly, a lot of respect deserves a steady increase in the amount allocated from the state budget to the social sphere.
Uzbekistan\'s experience in the health sector clearly shows that the country is going in the right direction by strengthening the capacity of health workers in the field of maternal and child health at all levels, developing modern infrastructure for the provision of specialized and high-tech health care for mothers, children and adolescents.
Based on the foregoing, I am convinced that the announcement of 2016 \"Year of healthy mother and child\" will expand the scope of consistent work to strengthen nation\'s gene pool.
Our reference: PWL is a non-governmental organization established in 1995. It is engaged in support, protection of women rights and interests, increasing social, socio-legal and labor activity of Polish women, level of their legal and economic knowledge, promote the fullest possible satisfaction of their needs.
