In May, the office of the United Nations Children's Fund () in Uzbekistan delivered the first batch of oxygen equipment to the provincial children's hospital and provincial perinatal center of the Kashkadarya province, the UNICEF office reported in the country.

This equipment is expected to improve the quality of healthcare services for more than 150 thousand children and mothers in the province.

Using the new equipment, medical workers will be able to carry out prompt actions to save the lives of newborns and mothers in critical conditions, the report said.

Reportedly, UNICEF continues to provide assistance to improve access to life-saving health care during and after childbirth. This, in turn, helps to improve the survival rates of newborns.
