The business programme architecture for the Healthy Life Forum has been published on the event’s website. The Forum, which will take place on 12 February 2020 on the first day of the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi, will be held under the motto ‘Sustainable Development Goals 2020’.
“We face the ambitious goal of increasing the life expectancy of Russian citizens. Health is our most important value and taking care of it not only depends on health programmes, but also each person’s individual responsibility for their lifestyle. The Healthy Life Forum is a dialogue platform to exchange experience and come up with practical proposals to implement projects in the healthcare sector and promote a healthy and active lifestyle. The Forum was held for the first time last year, brought together more than 3,000 people from 21 countries, and immediately established itself as one of the leading events in the healthcare industry,” Adviser to the Russian President Anton Kobyakov said.
Yevgeny Shlyakhto, General Director of the Almazov National Medical Research Centre of the Russian Ministry of Health and an academician at the Russian Academy of Sciences, also noted the practical significance of the event: “The implementation of such large-scale national projects as the Healthcare project requires the intensive involvement of the state, public professional organizations, the expert community, business, and the media. Collaboration makes it possible to find new and interesting solutions to achieve your goals. I am certain that we can expect important and meaningful discussions at the Forum whose results will directly contribute to the implementation of key projects in healthcare.”
The business programme track ‘Building Up the Potential to Reduce Health Risks’ will bring together sessions that cover key issues involving the creation of a healthy society and the implementation of programmes that aim to increase Russians’ life expectancy. The track will include discussions on the fight against cardiovascular and infectious diseases, diabetes as well as modern technologies in healthcare.
“This year we have significantly expanded the Forum’s business programme. Today it meets all modern trends and covers the most relevant health topics. We expect the international expert community, including the World Health Organization, to be widely represented,” Head of the Healthy Life project and First Deputy Director for Development of the Roscongress Foundation Anastasia Stolkova said.
Sessions in the track ‘Managing Healthcare: From the Federal to the Regional Level’ will be devoted to funding for healthcare in the regions, demographic prospects, the evolution of the drug supply system, and corporate health programmes.
A meeting of the Expert Council on Regional Healthcare of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly will be held for the first time on the sidelines of the Healthy Life Forum.
Award ceremonies will be held at the Forum for the winners of the national contest ‘Best Public-Private Collaboration Project in Healthcare’ and the contest ‘Top 10 Innovative Companies in Healthcare’.
In 2020, a new business breakfast format with the theme of ‘Health, Beauty, and Longevity’ will be held at the Healthy Life Forum.
The intellectual partner of the Healthy Life Forum is the Content Foundation for the Development of Expert and Analytical Activities.
