MOSCOW, January 10 (Itar-Tass) — A sum of 5,933,500,000 rubles will be allocated for medical aid in road accidents in 2012, a source in the Russian Ministry of Health and Social Development told Itar-Tass.
“The program for this year covers 21 regions,” said the source. A total of 207 accident injury treatment centers of contemporary standards was set up in the regions in the three years the program is implemented. Experts summed up the results of the implementation of the program over two years as regards the decrease of deaths in road accidents. Thus, the incidence of deaths in road accidents in the regions to which the program applies dropped by 22.2 percent, while the death rate for nine months of 2011 decreased by 5.4 percent.
As many as 49 Russian regions were implementing the program in 2008-2010. A sum of 9,180,200,000 rubles from the federal budget was spent for the purpose.
Still more significant indexes are planned for the years ahead, the source in the ministry said. Deaths in road accidents are expected to decrease from 19.2 cases per 100,000 people in 2011 to 15.2 cases by 2015. The number of cases of disability resulting from road accidents should decrease, too. Experts also expect the lowering of the economic loss of the state through the preservation of the country’s labor potential and saving on the payment of disability pensions and sick leaves.
