Vitamin and Dietary Supplements Market: Russia Keeping Up with Global Trends
Panel session ‘Healthy Life’ Programme Session sponsored by RBC The issue of the conscious intake of vitamins and bioactive supplements has long been raised by both the medical community and the manufacturers of these drugs, who value their reputation and promote the idea of smart consumption. The coronavirus pandemic has served as sort of catalyst for this process, since many countries at the national level have realized the need for the vitamin fortification of the population.
Russia is no exception. Doctors share the opinion that the proper intake of vitamins and dietary supplements has a positive effect on the overall strengthening of a person’s immunity. Consumers’ attitude towards dietary supplements has also changed; polling has recorded increased consumer confidence in this group of drugs. The vitamin and mineral products market reacted instantly to the global trend: demand increased by 40% in 2020, as the market was worth around RUB 56 billion. This year, the situation is repeating itself. In January 2021, sales of vitamins and dietary supplements increased by 50% compared with last January.
The time has now come to think about how to fortify the population with vitamins. Is there a need for government policy with strict quality standards? Can we utilize the experience of the Soviet Union, where this work was carried out on a systematic basis? Who should think about the vitamin consumption culture and how? What steps should be taken to improve awareness-raising among the population on the proper intake of vitamins and dietary supplements?

Discussion topics:
• Global trends in vitamin fortification: is Russia keeping up?
• Growth in vitamin and dietary supplement sales in Russia and around the world – is this a global trend or a consequence of the pandemic?
• Whose job is it to enhance the culture of vitamin consumption?
• How can we ensure the availability of the highest quality vitamins and dietary supplements for the Russian market?

Taking a National Healthcare to a Whole New Level: Creating Medical Ecosystems
Panel session ‘Healthy Life’ Programme Nowadays, success or failure of a medical institution is assessed depending on the quality of services it rendered. Finding a balance between usefulness to a specific patient, the use of leading treatment protocols and standards, and economic considerations is becoming top priority. That said, the volume of medical information in the world is doubled every 2.5 months. The term ‘digital healthcare’ is gradually fading out because absolutely all healthcare now works digitally. In these circumstances, it is not enough for a medical company to simply hire marketing or digital experts. What is needed is a union of separate industry players, each of which has a market niche, a wide store of skills, an organizational structure, and industry connections. Such a system must be fully integrated: on the level of communications, shared understanding of the specific character of the business, shared data, control processes, accounting and budgeting, and so on. Only in that case, such an ecosystem as Connected Health Enterprise can function as a single body.
● How will the growing ecosystem demand impact the balance of power on the market?
● Are we heading toward risks of monopolization?
● Is building ecosystems solely the privilege of the government and institutional players?
● Should we expect radical changes in the labour market?
● Is the current medical education system at risk of going out of date?
● Does international practice have answers to these questions?

Affordable Quality: Opportunities and Risks of Developing the Generics Market in Russia
Panel session ‘Healthy Life’ Programme Session sponsored by RBC Trust in a brand, price, quality. These are the key principles of success on any market and the pharmaceutical market is no exception. Boosting the availability and efficiency of drugs is one of the key national healthcare goals, which is precisely why the generics market in Russia is actively growing and developing.
Meanwhile, the share of generics on the pharmaceutical markets of Germany and the United Kingdom is as high as 75%, yet this figure is only 45% in Russia. How can this indicator be increased and how can we meet the demand for high-quality and affordable drugs in Russia?
The domestic generics market remains a promising and significant one for manufacturers, investors, and consumers, but there are some key regulatory issues in pricing, patent laws, and public procurements that need to be addressed to support the sustainable development of this market.

• What resources do companies need in order to develop the production of affordable drugs?
• What mechanisms can help come up with productive solutions when developing the generics market in Russia?
• How can the national healthcare system and the end-user benefit from the expansion of the generic drug line?

Biotechnology Entrepreneurship. Can Unicorns Exist in Russia?
‘Healthy Life’ Programme (Session sponsored by Skolkovo Innovation Centre) The pandemic has had a huge impact on transformation of biotechnological innovations. Russian scientists have already demonstrated their prowess to the global scientific and business communities when the first ever coronavirus vaccine Sputnik V was registered in August 2020. To become a ‘unicorn’ in biotechnology, a startup needs to offer the market an entirely new product or present a significant transformation of an existing one. In global practice, it is becoming common practice when biotechnological innovations are created in cooperation: science and market go for maximum partnership. Lately, large industrial corporations in Russia work together with biotechnology startups to create incubation and acceleration programmes for start-ups, tailored to the needs of the market. Using the opportunities provided by these accelerators, young scientists, guided by the industry, hone their entrepreneurial skills, develop innovative technologies under the auspices of medical clinics, learn to attract investment, and receive mentoring support from the experts.
● How can the existing start-ups be sustained in Russia, new ones grown, and what is needed to take Russian innovations to the international arena?
● What conditions need to be created for inflow of investment to biotechnological startups?
● What should the integration of government, universities, labs, and industrial partners be like?
● What do innovation startups focus on now?

Its members must be ready take responsibility for their own health and for that of others, as well as to become dedicated allies to their governments in the fight against epidemics.

That means that she can exert key influence on development of healthy life as a whole, which will subsequently lay the groundwork for creating productive behavioural patterns in a harmonious and flourishing society.
● How can the desire to become an ambassador of a healthy lifestyle in society be promoted in women? What tools for this do we already have and what tools need to be provided?
● How can the full-time involvement of women in the bringing-up process in the family be preserved without limiting her involvement in social, political or entrepreneurial activities? What programmes may promote this?
● Is there an opportunity for looking at global experience and studying successful practices of involving women in creating a healthy lifestyle in order to adopt them in the national environment?
● How much can the female community impact the stability of healthcare systems?

High-Tech Medical Care: Expanding Access
Panel session ‘Healthy Life’ Programme Session sponsored by Vernoe Napravlenie ANPO Medical progress is dependent on complex and unique medical developments borne of modern scientific and technological breakthroughs. The recent significant changes to the healthcare funding system have affected the high-tech medical care sector as well. Now, federal medical organizations are directly funded through the Federal Compulsory Medical Insurance Fund. This means improved public access to high-tech medical care.
Additionally, the development of a federal system for telemedical consultations in recent years means that a person with a medical condition can get a consultation with a specialist in any federal medical organization. In practice, however, the public is ill-informed of the services available to them; the majority do not know about the possibility of remote consultations. Moreover, patients often have trouble getting a telemedical consultation due to existing bureaucratic barriers.
These factors greatly limit the access of a large part of the population to the full potential of the modern healthcare system, which creates reputational risks for the healthcare system as a whole and limits the system’s ability to provide the necessary volume of care.
● How can the regional residents be kept properly informed of new opportunities to receive medical care from federal medical organizations?
● What needs to be done to ensure the effective operation of the federal system of telemedical consultations? How can regional medical workers be kept in the loop?
● How is the telemedical consultation system organized in other countries? What best practices can be borrowed?
● What are the best regional practices for increasing access to medical care?
● How will the new changes affect the quality of medical care?
● Will pricing need to be adjusted?

Healthy Life as a Path of Growth: Uniting All, Available to Each
Panel session ‘Healthy Life’ Programme The pandemic showed that responsible attitude to personal health is one of the basic values of a healthy society, which must have a high level of solidarity and resistance to the challenges of overwhelming disasters. A state must have sufficient potential so that in a force majeure it would have the resources to provide timely and effective medical care to patients with severe and chronic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, malignant growths, diseases of the endocrine system, and others. The coronavirus crisis has become a vivid precedent of consolidation of the public and state in each other’s interests. By choosing the path of health protection, the public, on the one hand, helps the state to free up resources to provide up-to-date and high-quality medical care in all areas. On the other hand, the public prompts the creation of an effective infrastructure for healthcare activities, fulfilling the need for healthy living, strengthening of corporate health, and early diagnosis and disease prevention.
● Has the pandemic become an impetus to search for new development vectors in providing care to patients with socially significant diseases? How will the experience of the pandemic be reflected in the quality of such care in the future?
● What healthcare resources should the policy of creating a philosophy of responsible attitude to public health lean on?
● How can the culture of personal health awareness promote changes in present-day algorithms of medical care?
● What new areas in strengthening corporate and public health were created against the background of the pandemic?
● What measures of government policy should promote strengthening of prevention, early diagnosis, and PHC medical care?
● Will awareness of personal health and concomitant disease prevention become an effective measure in preventing the spread of severe diseases and creation of a healthy society?

Present-Day Therapy Against Diabetes: Innovations for Improving the Quality of Life
Panel session ‘Healthy Life’ Programme The critical growth rate of diabetes and high risks of complications leading to disability and premature death require taking significant measures at the state level. One of the key objectives is ensuring that innovative treatment is available to the patients. Today, innovative sugar-lowering combination drugs are as revolutionary in treating type 2 diabetes as insulin was a hundred years ago. The issues of technological development, support and stimulus of research and development, clinical research and inclusion of new treatment schemas in clinical recommendations, and improvement of availability of modern drugs are quite critical and require federal support. Ensuring quick access to innovative treatment by the public is, among others, a matter of drug supply financing, expanding lists of benefits, creating patient registers, etc. In the long run, such measures will lead the practice of innovative drug supply to principles of individual approach to each diabetes patient.
● What steps need to be taken for innovative diabetes drugs to be produced in Russia in sufficient quantities?
● What needs to be done for patients to have access to modern drugs manufactured on international markets?
● What mechanisms and regulatory initiatives can stimulate the pharma industry to manufacture innovative drugs?

Medical Science. How to Expedite Introduction into Practical Healthcare
Panel session ‘Healthy Life’ Programme Session sponsored by Sechenov University Historically, Russian science has a strong systematic foundation and a unique potential focused on breakthrough discoveries, development of leading technologies, and implementation of innovative products that ensure preservation and improvement of people’s lives. Today, however, the volume of scientific results exceeds that of solutions introduced into practice: research and development do not always reflect the current needs of the public and are not always in demand by the healthcare system. Unfavourable factors for the growth of the Russian medical science include inter-departmental disconnectedness and low innovative activity of business. Thus, results of scientific achievements are poorly integrated into healthcare and a situation of lost opportunities for use of new drugs and technologies is created in society. Building a favourable environment for medical science is a strategic task of the national government policy growth. It starts with systematic analysis of practical healthcare needs, an expert evaluation of research and development, and goes all the way to building strategies for financing and introducing scientific achievements into the healthcare system. The year 2020 has given a special standing to international cooperation in development of medical science, setting the course toward sharing experience and looking for new growth paths, and that means restoring the status quo of Russian science among the leading global scientific countries.
● How well does the Strategy for the Development of Medical Science in the Russian Federation until 2025 correspond to the goals of strengthening the industry’s positions?
● Solution of which problems will promote the advancement of the level of fundamental and applicable scientific research and growth of the scientific human capital?
● How can innovative activity of Russian business be increased and the share of R&D in the national pharma industry enlarged?
● What state strategies should promote expedited introduction of scientific research results into practical healthcare?
● How can the process of integrating Russian medical science into the global science community be expedited?
