‘Healthy Life’ Programme
Panel session
Pavilion F, Healthy Life Area

The problem of the protracted form of complications after COVID-19, better known as “long COVID”, has not only a medical but also an economic effect. The programme for rehabilitation and treatment of patients with health problems following an infection must include developing criteria for undergoing rehabilitation, creating a register and introducing domestically manufactured rehabilitation equipment into practice, resolving staff shortages, developing information technologies and motivation tools for involving people in rehabilitation measures. The state support programme needs a scientific and medical search in the sphere of studying the post-COVID syndrome aimed at finding the reasons for long-term consequences of the infection and effective treatment solutions precluding development of serious complications. Which resources should the state apply to ensure, at the level of all Russian regions, the requisite volume of assistance to patients suffering from post-COVID syndrome? What government support is needed for developing the scientific medical activities involved in studying the post-COVID syndrome? What advanced in medical treatment could bring closer a solution to the Long-COVID problem? Which medical methods and technologies are already being successfully applied in Russia and elsewhere in the world?
