More than 6 thous children born in Mogilev region within 6 months of 2014

More than 6 thousand children born in Mogilev region within 6 months of 2014; it's 219 babies more than during the respective period of the previous year. The region has been enjoying this positive trend for the last 4 years, deputy chairman of Mogilev region executive committee Valery Malashko told at the press-conference on demographic security.

"Unfortunately, the number of women of reproductive age has been reducing", deputy chairman regretted. "That's why the state promotes bearing of the second and next following children; it's the only way to reach the positive demographic balance." By the way, a half of the children born in 2013 in Mogilev region were the second or next following in their families.

Starting from January 2015, the region will implement the project "Large Family" aimed at supporting having many children. The project envisages that the family bearing the second and the next following child will be transferred $10,000 to the demand deposit account. The money will annually be indexed to the rate of inflation, and will make up $14,000 when a child reaches 18 years. It may be withdrawn from an account only when a child comes of age. The money may be spent on improving housing conditions, education and health services, or may be invested to a mother's additional retirement account. "Such a project is a novelty for our state", Valery Malashko told. "It will be implemented for a 5-year term, and then it's efficiency will be studied."

The measures undertaken in the field of health care protection also aims at improving the demographic situation. "Mogilev region enjoys the lowest infant mortality", the head of public healthcare office of Mogilev region executive committee Vladimir Shrubov stated. "It has been achieved due to the modern technologies used and highly-qualified specialists. He also reminded about the maternity department that had been opened recently in Bobruisk and would admit women from six neighbouring districts.

The region's administration pays special attention to creating social infrastructure. "This year two more kindergartens will open in Sputnik and Fatin housing areas of Mogilev city", head of education office of Mogilev region executive committee Vladimir Ryzhkov stressed.
