At the same time, the Minister of National Economy singled out a number of points, which must be focused on first. Thus, the issue of reducing maternal and infant mortality remains urgent.
The standards of treatment and rehabilitation of oncological diseases require improvement. In connection with the implementation of CSMI, the issue of the insufficiency of the level of the information and communication infrastructure of health care, as well as the computer literacy of medical workers, remains urgent.
The problems of rural health care, such as the underdeveloped infrastructure, facilities and resources, the lack of medical workers and staff turnover, as well as the untimely provision of medicines due to geographical remoteness, have not been fully addressed.
In this regard, the Program should provide for additional measures aimed at improving the medical and demographic situation and the health status of the population, � T. Suleimenov summed up.
In the course of the discussion, reports were made by regional Akims: North Kazakhstan – K. Aksakalov, Mangystau – E. Tugzhanov, Pavlodar – B. Bakauov, Deputy Akim of East Kazakhstan region Sh. Baibekov, Astana Akim A. Issekeshev.

The Head of State in his Address set a number of specific tasks to improve the health of the population, the implementation of which the Government needs to ensure this year.
The Ministry of Healthcare should especially thoroughly prepare for the implementation of the compulsory social medical insurance system.
