The tendency of dropping child mortality and maternal mortality was fixed in Armenia in 2013, Health Minister Derenik Dumanyan said at today's press-conference. He also added that the child mortality in the republic was 9.9 per mille, which is twofold lower of the CIS indicators.
According to the UNICEF report published in autumn 2013, in 2012 about 6,6 million children in all over the world died not reaching 5 years old - 18 000 children daily. This is almost twofold less than in 1990 when the number of the children which died not reaching 5, were 12 million.
