Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova held a meeting with the regions on the results of the implementation of the national project “Healthcare” in 2023 and the progress of its implementation in the first quarter of this year.

“In 2023, 319.2 billion rubles were allocated for the implementation of the Healthcare national project. The funds were provided in full. The level of achievement of the national project indicators, according to operational data, as of April 2024 is 99.5%. At the same time, the regions should pay special attention to the timely implementation of activities, since the current year is the final year for the “Healthcare” national project. New national projects will start in 2025,” said Tatyana Golikova.

The implementation of all 25 indicators of the national project “Healthcare” is noted, including the overfulfillment of some of them. Thus, over the past year, the most important medical and demographic indicator, “life expectancy,” has improved. In the country as a whole, it increased to 73.4 years.

In 2023, more than 60% of adults and 96% of children will be covered by preventive medical examinations or medical examinations. 98% of newborns were examined as part of expanded neonatal screening, which began on January 1, 2023.

In total, 316 healthcare facilities were built in 2023, and 796 prefabricated modular structures were purchased. Major repairs were carried out at 1.6 thousand facilities. More than 52 thousand units of equipment and more than 3 thousand units of vehicles were supplied for equipping and re-equipping medical organizations. The construction of 24 children’s hospitals was carried out, 7 of them were put into operation.

Also in November 2023, a new building with a nuclear medicine center at the National Medical Research Center for Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Immunology was put into operation.

The material and technical base of the cardiological service has been significantly strengthened. 328 regional vascular centers and primary vascular departments were equipped, more than 3.2 thousand units of medical equipment were supplied and put into operation.

An important priority is to provide medical institutions with qualified personnel.

As Tatyana Golikova noted, in 2024 a large graduation rate is planned for both secondary vocational and higher education programs of all categories of medical personnel. Therefore, regions need to pay attention to the effective routing of graduates to work in their specialty and take effective measures to ensure that young specialists come to work in the industry.

In addition, the Deputy Prime Minister emphasized the need for more active implementation of digital technologies in the healthcare sector to make digital services available to citizens, including telemedicine technologies, electronic appointments with a doctor, and electronic prescriptions. To achieve this, work must be intensified to implement the federal project “Creating a single digital circuit in healthcare” of the national project “Healthcare”.
