The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, 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, 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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

A System of Universal Medicine Provision: Key to Achieving the National Goal
13 February 2019

Achieving life expectancy of 78 by 2024 is a multifaceted challenge, dependent to equal degrees on the population’s income level, lifestyle, and on the effectiveness of the healthcare system. Largely thanks to a system of medicine provision, developed countries have mostly succeeded in increasing life expectancy over the last 20 years. In Russia, access to free drugs through doctors’ prescriptions is today enjoyed only by those citizens who receive social benefits or who suffer from specific illnesses. Government expenditure in Russia is three times lower in this respect than in European Union countries with a similar level of economic development. Implementing a system of universal medicine provision will help to stop serious illnesses from getting worse and leading to complications, reduce the use of more long-term forms of healthcare, and have a positive impact on social attitudes. How much needs to be spent on medicine supply on a national scale? What is the government’s role in this expenditure? What should the implementation of a universal medicine provision system begin with? How can long-term medicine needs be determined? Are there provisions for reducing the costs of medicinal products by increasing the volume of public procurement?
