31 August 2021

The ‘Partnership Against the Pandemic: Anti-Crisis Strategies in Medicine’ session will be held as part of the business programme of the Eastern Economic Forum. The event is part of the thematic track ‘The New Economy: What Changes and What Stays the Same’, which is being organized by the Roscongress Foundation’s Healthy Life project.

The expert discussion will be attended by Minister of Health of the Russian Federation Mikhail Murashko, Representative to the Russian Federation and the Head of the World Health Organization Office in the Russian Federation Melita Vujnovic, Minister of Health and Welfare of the Republic of Korea Kwon Deok-cheol, Russian Direct Investment Fund CEO Kirill Dmitriev, Head of the Subcommittee on Circulation of Medicines, Development of the Pharmaceutical and Medical Industry of the Committee of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on Health Protection Aleksandr Petrov, Head of the Higher School of Healthcare Organization and Management Guzel Ulumbekova, Director of the National Medical Research Radiological Centre of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Andrey Kaprin, and others. The session will be moderated by Editor-in-Chief of the Doctor Channel and Russia 24 Anchor Evelina Zakamskaya.

Taking into account the on-the-ground experience of fighting the pandemic, our national healthcare systems must meet the challenge of the times, as well as institute sustainable cross-border partnerships to develop effective strategies to confront health challenges. Economic cooperation amongst Asia-Pacific countries remains vital as they were the first to be hit by coronavirus. The core issue in the transformation of global health today is national health security, not only in terms of strategies to prevent similar disasters from occurring, but also new areas of treatment and therapeutics that ensure high-quality medical care for all citizens remains available.

“The Far East’s proximity to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region creates broad opportunities for cooperation, building intercountry relations, exchanging experience, and sharing technologies. The national healthcare systems of numerous countries have been transformed to effectively counter the coronavirus. The best experience should be scaled at the international level, and such dialogue platforms as the Eastern Economic Forum play a significant role in this matter,” Aleksandr Petrov said.

The session participants will discuss what attributes of a sustainable healthcare system meet the challenges of national security, what international best practices in building sustainable healthcare systems are most relevant to these goals, which current trends are influencing the development of medical cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region, and how the experience of the pandemic contributed to healthcare provision reforms in the Far East.
