SHYMKENT. KAZINFORM - Akim (governor) of South Kazakhstan region Zhanseit Tuimebayev met with Giulia Vallese, Representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), in Shymkent city this week, Kazinform has learnt from the governor's press service.

At the meeting, Mr. Tuimebayev and Ms Vallese exchanged views on reducing maternal and infant mortality rate, preserving gender equality and preventing domestic abuse. The sides also touched upon the possibility of opening of the UNFPA representative office in South Kazakhstan region that will allow to step up cooperation.

Governor Tuimebayev noted that the region attaches great importance to the problems of reducing maternal and infant mortality given that some 80,000 newborns are born there annually. "Our region is densely populated. The relative share of mothers is 50% in the 3-million population of the region. In this light, I suggest opening a representative office of the Fund in South Kazakhstan region," Zhanseit Tuimebayev said.
