The Ministry of Health implements highly effective methods of premature newborns reanimation
Use of vitamin K for prevention of hemorrhagic disease in newborns, which leads to increased risk of bleeding, will be implemented into practice on the basis of international standards. The introduced technology allows overcoming the disease almost in all cases.
Another novelty will be practical use of surfactant. This drug is used to prevent respiratory disorders syndrome in premature newborns. The pilot implementation of this technology will be held at the perinatal center in Tashkent, and subsequently this experience will be distributed throughout the country.
The Ministry of Health will also make every effort to ensure maximum coverage with breastfeeding for up to 6 months children. It is planned to conduct \"Promotion and support of breastfeeding\" week in the entire republic with certification of medical institutions under the program \"Hospitalsí Baby Friendly Initiative \".
Experts believe that this set of measures will contribute to the further reduction of neonatal, infant and child mortality.
