Meeting of State Council Presidium working group on improving medication supply system

July 23, 2018, Moscow

The first meeting of the working group for preparing the State Council Presidium meeting on improving the medicine supply system in the Russian Federation was held under the chairmanship of Presidential Aide and State Council Secretary Igor Levitin.

State Council member and Acting Governor of Ivanovo Region Stanislav Voskresensky lead the working group, which includes more than 60 representatives of federal and regional executive bodies and non-government organisations.

The participants discussed matters related to regional purchasing of medicines, the introduction of an information and analysis system for monitoring and control of medicine procurement for state and municipal needs, an automated system for monitoring the movement of medicines using markings and the identification of drug packages created in pursuance of presidential instructions, as well as issues related to transferring to the federal level the authority to supply medicines to patients afflicted by orphan diseases included on the list of rare life-threatening and chronic progressive diseases leading to reduced life span or disability.

The participants noted that the introduction of an information and analysis monitoring and control system in the procurement of medicines would help prevent corruption related to using contracts tailored to specific suppliers, as well as purchase medicines at the lowest available prices.
