Villa Clara with one of the lowest infant mortality rates in Cuba

The CMHW confirmed the news during its Saturday's special broadcast: Villa Clara is in the group of the Cuban provinces that registered the lowest rates of infant mortality per one thousand born children, with an indicator of 3.7; said Dr. Yandry Alfonso Chang, head of the Maternal and Child Program in the territory, in statements to our radio station this Saturday, January 2nd, when he recognized all those who contributed to this result.

Four municipalities reported this health indicator at 0; being these: Quemado de Guines, Encrucijada, Santo Domingo, and Manicaragua.

The Cuban provinces that had the lowest infant mortality rates per one thousand live births were Holguin (3.4), Sancti Spiritus (3.4), Mayabeque (3.5), Villa Clara (3.7) and Pinar del Rio (3.7).

Every beginning of the year, Cuba reports one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the continent, only compared to those of the developed countries, figures that are not transcendent because they are repeated, as they reflect the political will of the Cuban State and its Health system to preserve the life of all pregnant women, the puerperal women and the infants in the country.
