Demographic Challenges of the Far East and the Arctic
5 September 2022

The Far Eastern Federal District is a unique region that is advantageously located in the natural transport corridor between Asia and Europe and in close proximity to the rapidly growing market of the Asia-Pacific region. It has great potential for the development of innovative infrastructure considering that it is home to the world’s largest reserves of natural resources. To this end, strengthening the human resource potential of the Far East is a strategically important task for ensuring its socioeconomic development. Meanwhile, the current demographic situation requires constructive and systematic solutions to increase people’s life expectancy and reduce the outflow of the population to other regions of Russia. Key indicators that shape the quality of life in the Far East are still far behind the Russian average. To overcome the gap in people’s living standards in the Far Eastern Federal District, the healthcare sector needs to be fundamentally developed. It is particularly important to develop a system for the treatment and prevention of non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular, oncological, and chronic respiratory diseases, as well as diabetes, which significantly contribute to mortality in Russia and around the world. What are the main goals that the healthcare system needs to achieve to increase life expectancy and the birth rate, taking into account the unique features of the region? What steps need to be taken to systematically develop primary health care in the Far East? What role do digital technologies play in increasing access to healthcare? What measures are planned to overcome the lack of medical infrastructure in remote and rural areas?
