The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Public Health in the Regions
13 February 2019
10:00—11:30

Increasing healthy life expectancy from the present 63 years to 67 years is a crucial national objective and very important for Russia. Public health programmes target large population groups and are implemented by a variety of agencies. They cover the public health and epidemiological wellbeing of the population, vaccinations, motivating people to reject harmful lifestyle choices, measures to prohibit and restrict the sale of alcohol and tobacco and to encourage healthy eating, conducting preventative examinations, and other measures to improve public health. Three federal projects directly aim to achieve this goal — ‘Strengthening Public Health’, ‘Sport as a Part of Everyday Life’ and ‘Development of the Primary Healthcare System’. What do people need to know about a healthy lifestyle? What role do the heads of municipalities and regions play in implementing public healthcare programmes? What targets should be set to reduce the popularity of harmful lifestyle choices? What are the main focuses for modernizing centres? What role do volunteers play in promoting public health?
