Increasing the Birth Rate and Promoting Children’s Health Are Key Priorities Panel session Demographics: on the threshold of societal change Russia is currently facing a serious demographic challenge in the form of a declining birth rate. In order to overcome this problem, key objectives need to be met: people need strong motivation to have their first and subsequent children, there must be reproductive healthcare for both women and men, child mortality needs to be reduced, and young families need to be provided with affordable housing. Three federal projects focused on solving these challenges have already been launched: ‘Financial Support for Families with Newborn Children’, ‘Facilitating Employment for Women – Establishing Conditions for Pre-School Education of Children up to the Age of Three’ (with the objective of increasing the birth rate from 1.6 to 1.7 by 2024), and ‘Developing Child Healthcare’ (with the objective of reducing infant mortality and mortality among children aged 0–17 by 20% by 2024). How can a replacement fertility level be ensured in Russia? Are the measures envisaged by federal projects to create conditions which will encourage people to have children sufficient? What new technologies could help increase the birth rate? What are the roles of different agencies, and of the family, in reducing mortality among children and teenagers? What must be done in healthcare to ensure the health of our children: prevention through inoculation, improved primary care, or public health campaigns?

Quality of Life for the Older Generation: Programme Implementation Panel session Demographics: on the threshold of societal change The Demographics National Project envisages the implementation of a federal project entitled ‘The Older Generation’. The key objective is to extend healthy life expectancy to 67 years and reduce Russia’s mortality rate. Achieving this will require a comprehensive approach, including ensuring access to medical care, creating a system for long-term treatment and an environment conducive to the delivery of social services, and campaigning to promote a caring attitude towards the elderly. A crucial part of this is actively engaging the older generation in the charitable sector, or so-called ‘silver volunteering’, in order to help bring the over-55s together. The Russian Association of Volunteer Centres is already implementing a federal programme entitled ‘Young at Heart’, thanks to which volunteering centres are opening in Russia’s regions and providing a foundation for training programmes and the creation of a community of leaders. What impact could the results of regional projects have on active longevity? How many citizens in the Russian Federation need long-term care services, and how much money is required for this? How should financial responsibility be distributed among citizens and the government when creating a system of long-term care? What medical services do older citizens need the most? How can we create a safe environment for the older generation to live in?
