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.

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.

The National Healthcare Project. Battling Non-communicable Diseases in Action
6 June 2019
14:10—15:10

Non-communicable diseases account for more than 70% of all deaths around the world and are among the biggest barriers to healthy ageing and longevity. An effective public policy that aims to increase life expectancy must combat the four main causes of death from NCDs: circulatory system diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes. Russia has significant potential to reduce the death rate from non-communicable diseases largely due to the implementation of the national Healthcare project. Will the national project help achieve the global goal of reducing premature mortality from NCDs by one third by 2030? What global practices in fighting NCDs diseases may be beneficial for Russia? Are the coordinated efforts of the state and municipal authorities enough to implement the specialized federal projects? What innovative drugs and breakthrough technologies will ensure the effectiveness of NCD prevention and treatment? What can research centres and business do to contribute to achieving the goal of living past the age of 80?
