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 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian t.me/Roscongress, English – t.me/RoscongressDirect, and Spanish t.me/RoscongressEsp. Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Regular Discussion about Irregular Illness: Prospects for Drug Therapy
15 June 2022
10:00—11:30

The creation of the Circle of Kindness Foundation has changed the way NPOs, the state, and business interact, led to a redistribution of resources between state and charitable programmes, and forced a rethinking of the social contract in place for children with serious and rare diseases. The Foundation’s appearance on the scene has altered the dynamic governing relations between the ministry concerned, regional health authorities, medical institutions, and public organizations. The creation of the Circle of Kindness Foundation has also affected the market for expensive drugs and given rise to new opportunities in the country’s pharmaceutical industry: the Foundation consistently purchases a significant amount of new, expensive, innovative drugs. All of these factors are constantly presenting the Foundation and, more broadly, society with new challenges, risks, and demands. What impact does the new environment have on the ethical foundations underlying the activities of healthcare professionals? How can the decision-making process be improved to better care for children with serious and rare diseases? What opportunities are opening up for Russian pharmaceutical manufacturers and how quickly and effectively will they be able to take advantage of these opportunities? How can we build more effective and harmonious relationships between the Circle of Kindness Foundation, NPOs, and patient organizations to better serve patients with rare and serious illnesses?
