The health Ministry has taken all measures to address the comments of the chamber of accounts, but notes that when assessing the number of indicators it is impossible to apply the inventory approach, reported the press service of the Ministry.

First of all, it should be noted that when the evaluation of certain indicators could not be applied exclusively to the inventory approach, without analysis of the essence of the question… observations concerning the institutions and issues financial statements, the Ministry has taken measures to remove all checked comments», — stated in the message of Ministry of health.

The Ministry noted that life expectancy at birth is an integral demographic indicator, which is influenced by many factors, including socio-economic factors. 2016 is the expected life expectancy increased by 0.5 years, reaching 72 years.

For this reason, the present comparison is incorrect», — said the Agency.
