Dates Set for Healthy Life Forum 2020
16 September 2019
The dates have been set for the Healthy Life Forum. The event will take place on 12 February 2020 at the Olympic Park Main Media Centre in Sochi.
The Healthy Life Forum, which last year was held with the slogan ‘Towards 80+’, will take place on the first day of the Russian Investment Forum for the second year in a row. The Forum has already established itself as a platform to discuss and find solutions to the implementation of national projects that aim to create a healthy society and increase healthy life expectancy among Russians.
“Increasing the healthy life expectancy of Russian citizens is one of the top priorities facing the government today. The Forum serves as a platform for dialogue between government officials and the expert community and a place where practical tools are being developed to achieve national goals and objectives in healthcare. Organizing such platforms for the expert community to interact is of strategic importance. An integrated approach and joint work among representatives of the medical community, society, and the government is important for solving problems,” Advisor to the Russian President Anton Kobyakov said.
“Holding the Healthy Life Forum on the first day of the Russian Investment Forum has become a good tradition and a significant event in the Russian and international medical communities. Last year, over 3,000 people attended the event, including representatives of the federal and regional authorities, the expert and scientific community, major domestic and foreign companies, and various types of practitioners. The events and discussions held at the Forum helped to find joint solutions in order to create a healthy society and lifestyle and increase life expectancy among Russians,” Russian Minister of Health Veronika Skvortsova said.
Roscongress Foundation First Deputy CEO for Development Anastasia Stolkova said, “The healthcare and healthy lifestyle agenda has been the basis of numerous discussions at various platforms of the Roscongress Foundation: the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, the Eastern Economic Forum, the Russian Investment Forum, and others. I am certain that the Healthy Life Forum will become one of the Foundation’s key events and a platform for reviewing the progress of activities in this area over the past year.”
