MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Member of the board of the Military-Industrial Commission Sergei Bulavin held a meeting on the functioning and development of medical support in the Russian Armed Forces, other troops, military formations and bodies. Each of the departments reported on the work in the context of the pandemic and plans for the future.
The main tasks of medicine in law enforcement agencies are the preservation and strengthening of the health of personnel, timely provision of medical assistance, as well as restoration of working capacity, reminded a member of the military-industrial complex board Sergei Bulavin.
“The coronavirus pandemic has become a serious test for our health care system,” said Bulavin. – The Government of Russia will develop new approaches to its further development together with scientific, medical communities and experts. The health care system must fully meet the needs of citizens and the needs of the security forces. “
The participants of the meeting acknowledged that more attention should be paid to military medicine: the structure of medical institutions, personnel issues and financial support of doctors. Positive trends were noted in the vaccination and revaccination of personnel, as well as the modernization of medical equipment at the expense of the Government’s reserve fund. All servicemen and employees of power structures are provided with means of individual and collective protection. Thanks to the timely measures taken, it was possible to preserve the combat capability of the army and the effectiveness of the power structures.
In addition, they discussed the issue of early diagnosis of diseases that arise as a result of the transferred coronavirus, and a deeper diagnosis of those who have recovered. “I would like to draw the attention of heads of medical departments, chief sanitary doctors of departments to the obligatory deep medical examination of employees, regardless of age,” emphasized Bulavin. “This will avoid many extremely serious complications.”
