Progress on strengthening maternal and child health in the Central Asian Republics, Azerbaijan and Kazakstan : proceedings of the second meeting of CARAK coordinators, Tashkent, December 1996
AbstractThe CARAK project started in autumn 1994 when the health ministries of six central Asian republics decided to participate in a district-based project to strengthen maternal and child health. The project has now reached its third year of implementation. At the second meeting of the district and national coordinators of the CARAK project, progress was reviewed on family planning, maternal and child health, and clinical practices and policies. Although the mateial resources for the project have so far been limited, certain positive trends are noticeable at district level.

National data were also reviewed, and these showed a general trend towards improvement in maternal and child health
