Gaidar Forum participants discuss the provision of medicines in Russia
The expert discussion, The Provision of Medicines in Russia: Budget, Balance and Outcome, was held on 13 January as part of the Gaidar Forum 2017. The event was attended by the Russian Healthcare Minister Veronika Skvortsova.
Affordable medications make the foundation of an effective healthcare system, as its functioning depends directly on the well-being of the economy. The discussion focused on the following questions. What kind of medicines procurement policy should the Russian Government pursue in the face of new global challenges? Is it possible to develop mechanisms for mutually beneficial interaction between the Government and business, based on partnership? Will these mechanisms optimize public spending on health care?
