Project justification:

The analysis of the demographic situation in Glusk District over the past two decades shows a stably high level of total mortality, which is significantly higher than the regional and nationwide figures. In 2021 total mortality in Glusk District was 25.9‰, up 5.6‰ year-on-year. Average life expectancy in Glusk district stood at 73.8 years as against 74.4 years spelled out in the state program “Health and Demographic Security of the Republic of Belarus for 2021-2025”. Serious concern is caused by a rather high mortality rate among the working-age population, which was 2.4 times higher than the norm across the healthcare organizations in Mogilev Oblast in 2021 to make up 9,2‰.

The mortality rate of working-age population in Glusk District was 8.3‰ in 2020, and 9.2 ‰ in 2021. The birth rate in the district is decreasing every year, amounting to 8.06 ‰ in 2021.The natural population decline was 17.8% in 2021 and 15.64% in 2020.

The proportion of the population over 60 years old is 32% in Glusk District, 25.5% in Mogilev District, 22.5% in Mogilev, 24.5% in Bobruisk.

The death rate of people older than working age is 4 times higher than the death rate of working-age citizens.

In the structure of total mortality, diseases of the circulatory system account for 62.4 %, malignant neoplasms - 9.2 %.

The development of human potential and improvement of the demographic situation are vital for the future development of Glusk District and the growth of its economic competitiveness. Addressing the above mentioned issues is a priority task of Glusk District.
