Attention to Health in SPIEF and EEF Programmes Discussed During Russia – Republic of Korea Dialogue Forum
On 9 December 2022, within the framework of the Media
and Civil Society Working Group of the Dialogue Forum Russia – Republic of
Korea, a workshop on ‘Science, Health and Media’ was organized by St.
Petersburg State University. Dr. Guzel Ulumbekova, Rector of the Higher School
of Health Care Organization and Management, gave a presentation entitled ‘The
role of the medical elite in shaping public and government attitudes to health
She noted that the St. Petersburg International
Economic Forum and the Eastern Economic Forum are examples of platforms where
health problems and solutions are regularly discussed.
“Business platforms have begun to appear in Russia
where one can boldly express one’s position on the most pressing issues and
problems of modern healthcare. It is encouraging that Roscongress Foundation’s
events allow direct dialogue not only with representatives of the authorities
and the industry, but also with a wider audience: entrepreneurs, journalists,
and opinion leaders. Such communication makes it possible to draw maximum
attention to these problems and contribute to their resolution. I am sure that
by involving more and more people in healthcare development issues, including
through such authoritative platforms as SPIEF and EEF, together we can make
medical care in Russia more accessible and improve its quality," stressed
Healthcare development issues are given special
attention at the Roscongress Foundation’s business conventions and exhibitions.
On the platform of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum and the
Eastern Economic Forum, there is the Healthy Life Area, which has traditionally
been an important part of the programme.
This project is a dedicated platform for direct
dialogue at national and international level between representatives of the
authorities and expert communities on the search for practical solutions to key
issues in the field of healthcare. The project also takes an active position in
social state policy and is an ideologist of the concept of forming a healthy
society as a guideline for Russia’s development.
