Public Health: Challenges of the Times

18 Jun , 13:00–14:30
‘Healthy Life’ Programme
Panel session
Pavilion F, Healthy Life Area

Physical, emotional and social health as factors behind harmonious development are an integral part of the unified public health system and imply the need to develop an effective system of state management for the given sphere. Public health is a sphere of inter-departmental collaboration requiring development of systemic approaches to managing and monitoring the situation taking into account the needs and potential of all groups of stakeholders: the population, the state, businesses, NPOs and so on. Considering the strategic national priorities, it is vital to introduce a social model for strengthening public health at the regional and municipal level as a factor for long-term economic growth. One pressing task is also to develop educational and training standards for specialists in public health improvement. What institutional approaches exist to managing public health and what role do regional and municipal authorities play? How is the role of public health perceived by the Russian populace? What do businesses request and need? How can the personnel potential be assessed for realizing the strategic goal of strengthening public health? What is the role of NPOs as a key stakeholder in the system for forming public health?
