“One of the goals set in the Decree issued by the President in May 2018, ‘On National Goals and Strategic Objectives of the Russian Federation for the Period up to 2024’, to increase life expectancy to 78 years by 2024 and to 80 years by 2030, concerns both the federal centre and all regions of our country. And this is not just about medicine. A holistic approach is needed to achieve this important goal, including programmes not just in the areas of healthcare and demographic development but also in the spheres of science, education and the environment. Of particular importance is promotion of a healthy lifestyle and active ageing”, said Veronika Skvortsova, Minister of Health of the Russian Federation.

The Forum will include business events, presentations, a competition of innovative projects by technology companies, and the Healthy Society exhibition, which will allow the participants to debate key problems of demographic development, healthcare and raising living standards for Russian people, while also learning about promising medical projects.
“The Healthy Life Forum: Towards 80+ will be held for the first time and it is designed to become a vital platform for direct dialogue between government agencies and the expert community, and for a joint search for and development of practical proposals for implementing national programmes and projects for achieving a higher healthy life expectancy in Russia.
