Havana.- The eastern Cuban province of Holguin is expected to report positive results in children's health indicators in 2017.
According to predictions, the province's infant mortality rate should be around 3.4 deaths per every 1,000 live births, thus remaining under four.
So far, Holguin has reported 9,864 births, 300 fewer than last year.
Experts pointed out that the number of deaths is expected to decrease too as part of the implementation of the Mother-Child Program.
The Rafael Freyre municipality has reported zero deaths among children under one year of age, while that indicator in most regions remains under the province's average.
