Oleg Kuvshinnikov attended a Government meeting devoted to health care led by Prime Minister Dmirty Medvedev.
The main emphasis of the meeting of the Government Commission was on providing wider access to mobile medical care and transport provision for medical services.
Among the participants of the meeting there was Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Olga Golodets, RF Minister of Public Healthcare Veronika Skvortsova, Russian Minister of Labour and Social Protection Maxim Topilin, Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, Minister of Education and Science Dmitry Livanov, Minister of Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation Nikolai Nikiforov, governors of Russian regions, doctors and representatives of public and religious organizations.
The participants of the meeting discussed how the principle of access to healthcare in our country is implemented. They talked about the mobile medical services, including such a technically challenging issue as medical aviation. This is an important issue for our country because the population density is low in many regions.
Equal access to healthcare services should be provided for everyone. Every citizen in any part of Russia, a really vast country must get a medical service. Dmitry Medvedev noted that the regional health development programmes for 2012-2020 provide for organising over 200 mobile medical units and rural health posts. But that is only a part of what is needed, and there’s still a lot of work to be done.
The members of the Government Commission stressed that one of the main tasks is to provide mobile medical units and rural health posts for primary healthcare to rural residents who live in the villages with populations under 100.
Vologda Oblast Governor Oleg Kuvshinnikov briefed the Prime Minister on agreements that were sighed by the local government and a non-profit autonomous organization for healthcare system development “New emergency and urgent care service”. At the first stage of the cooperation between the Vologda Oblast Government and an autonomous organization for healthcare system development “New emergency and urgent care service”, 20 emergency vehicles will be shipped to the Vologda Oblast. By the end of 2014 it is planned to upgrade 80 more emergency vehicles in the Vologda Oblast. This cooperation under public private partnerships will relieve the oblast’s budget and might free resources for fulfilling the presidential policy decrees signed by RF President Vladimir Putin in May 2012.
