Minister of Public Health, Dr. George Norton expressed deep concern for the worsening state of infant mortality in Guyana on Friday night during the Budget 2015 debate.Public Health Minister, Dr. George NortonDr. Norton revealed that in the space of five months in 2014, over 160 infants died at the Georgetown Public Hospital.The Opposition was silent when this revelation was brought to the front burner.He said that the coalition government as well as his Ministry finds the situation unacceptable and will be preoccupied with arresting the “grave situation.”Dr. Norton told Members of Parliament that the goal was to reduce infant mortality to less than 14 per 1,Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys,000 births but that stands at 23.1, while child mortality rate under five years of age was supposed to be 16 but stands at 24.2 for 2014.The Public Health Minister said, “Actually, the result of a multi indicator cluster survey shows that in Guyana, the probability of dying within the first month of life is 22.9 per 1,000 live births and between birth and first birthday is 31.8.? If you think that is bad, consider that between birth and fifth birthday, the probability of your child dying here in Guyana is 39.2.”The Health Minister added, “Mr. Speaker,NFL Jerseys Wholesale, just to give you some hard but accurate data, in 2014, neonatal deaths at the GPHC alone were the following; during the month of June, there were 25; July, 30, August, 44; September, 33; October 35 and the trend continues.”Dr. Norton reiterated that this disturbing situation is not only a priority concern to his Ministry but is of a national concern to the APNU/AFC Government. He said, too, that another worrying issue is the high maternal mortality rate.The Member of Parliament said that this is so especially because of the global classification system by the World Health Organization in a just completed report in which Guyana is the only Caricom country,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, including Haiti that shows “No Progress”.He revealed that the report tracks trends in global maternal mortality rates for the period 1990-2013. The rate in Guyana rose from 210 deaths in 1990 to 250 in 2013.The politician noted that the target was to reduce maternal mortality to below 80 to every 100,000 births which amounts to less than 11 deaths in a year. Dr. Norton said that for this year there are already eight maternal deaths here in Guyana, the latest being Wednesday last.“Mr. Speaker,Wholesale NFL Jerseys Online, that might be so because among other things, only 37 percent of complicated pregnancy received appropriate care. In Guyana we need 700 midwives but we have only 78. We have to do better than this Mr. Speaker and we will,” the Public Health Minister stated.The Parliamentarian seemed particularly agitated by the fact that some opposition members have been promoting the continuation of the Specialty Hospital throughout the budget debates.He said some believe that this controversial project will be the “magic wand to solve all the problems of mothers and babies dying.”Dr. Norton said, “In the majority of cases, our infants die from sepsis (infection). This Specialty Hospital happens to be one of the ‘so called’ transformational projects of the past regime that had to be abandoned due to poor conceptualization in the first place, no consultation with the local medical fraternity and other stakeholders, while information about same seemed to be top secret to the PPPC regime.”He continued, “What was most shocking about this whole project was the tendering and award of contract for this project to Surendra Engineering Inc. About the track record and performance of this company I go no further only to say that one cannot help remembering that famous quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Act 1,Cheap Basketball Jerseys For Sale, scene 4 when Marcellus said ‘Something is rotten in the state of Denmark’. Well, something was rotten with the Specialty Hospital.”The Public Health Minister said that the politician of the day cannot simply sit on a TV programme spewing political propaganda and wishing that the ills of the health sector will be solved.“You have to be on the ground working on all four cylinders, while being able to respond in a decent, mannerly and appropriate manner befitting of your position when the public asks questions about this sad state of affair of the deaths of our mothers and babies.”The Public Health Minister said the task of fixing the broken system is not going to be easy and it never was but assured the Members of Parliament that for the APNU/ AFC Government,NFL Jerseys China, losing this battle is not an option. “We have to win it.”
