CHEREPOVETS, September 5 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russia government has made the decision to disburse 2.3 billion roubles for the supply of medicines to benefit recipients, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said.
“I have never said this before: we have made the decision to allocate 2.3 billion roubles for additional medicine supply to benefit recipients,” Putin said at an inter-regional conference of the ruling United Russia party in Cherepovets on Monday, September 5.
“The money will go to regions, and I ask the regional authorities to make the purchases already this year to make sure that there are no problems with medicine supplies to benefit recipients at the beginning of next year, as it happened sometimes before,” the prime minister said.
The government will also provide an additional 2.5 billion roubles for high-tech medical help. “This will make it possible to finance up to 20,000 operations for those in need by the end of this year,” Putin added.
“But providing for funding in the budget is not enough. I ask the Ministry of Health and Social Development and the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences to organise rhythmical work of the centres that will provide all the necessary services. Special attention should be paid to children, as it has always been in Russia. There should be no such thing as a waiting list for children’s surgery in principle,” he said.
