The Forum’s goals have particular practical relevance, and will strike a chord with all of us. Substantive legislative support will be provided to achieve them. The Federation Council is currently focusing on the implementation of demographic initiatives in the regions, the National Action Plan for Women, and the Action Plan for the Older Generation. Legislation continues to be created in response to three major projects: A Decade of Childhood, Demography, and Healthcare.
A huge amount of work lies ahead. We must mobilize all our efforts and resources to ensure that high-quality medical care is available to all, worker shortage issues are addressed, healthy lifestyle values are promoted, and an environment conducive to active and healthy ageing is created.
I firmly believe that the Forum will facilitate the implementation of the government’s social policy, the improvement of healthcare in Russia, and the strengthening of the nation’s health overall.
Allow me to wish everyone a successful and productive Forum!
