The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 130 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 70 countries worldwide.

Infectious Diseases: How to Meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030?
13 February 2019
10:00—11:30

Although communicable diseases account for a smaller number of deaths in developed countries, they still result in substantial losses. In Russia, infectious diseases cause just 2% of deaths, but those who die are primarily young citizens of working age. The intensive migration of the population and developed tourism exacerbate this problem. As a result, new infections are appearing and old ones are making a return in new forms that are resistant to known drugs. According to WHO’s global plan for 2030, it is essential to end the AIDS epidemic, eliminate the hepatitis virus, and significantly reduce tuberculosis infection and mortality rates. In order to meet these challenges, it is vital to continuously monitor the situation, to intensively develop scientific research, and to put in place developed infrastructure and qualified staff, together with powerful prevention programmes and affordable drugs. How can the targets in WHO’s global plan be met in Russia? What problems must be overcome with respect to organizing the work of an infection control service and providing it with resources? Are there any new vaccines and drugs that could in principle have an impact on reducing mortality and illness caused by infectious diseases? How can hospital-acquired infections best be fought?
