MOSCOW, January 12 (Itar-Tass) — This year the government is planning to provide subsidies worth 6.43 billion rubles from the federal budget for purposes of improving medical assistance to oncological patients, a source from the Health and Social Development Ministry told Itar-Tass.
Measures to improve medical assistance to such patients are being taken in 35 regions. In 2009 -2011 the overall subsidies provided to the regions made up 18.6 billion roubles, the source said. These measures are aimed at lowering death rates and cancer sickness rates, improvement of life expectancy and the quality of life of oncological patients and lowering risk factors which provoke oncological diseases, the same source said.
In the same period death rates caused by oncological diseases dropped by 0.3 percent. In 2010 death rates dropped by 0.9 percent in comparison with the previous year, said Health and Social Development Minister Tatyana Golikova. Over nine months in 2011 death rates dropped by 1.6 percent among adults, and by 8.7 percent among children in comparison with the same period in 2010, Golikova said. A positive tendency remains in most of the oncological cases except prostate cancer which caused a two-percent growth in death rates.
In 2012 the subsidies will be provided to 14 regions where a system of oncological assistance will be created for purposes of early screening and providing a special combined anti-cancer therapy. The regions are to organize a monitoring of oncological diseases and related death rates and to issue a federal oncological register.
By 2015 the planned measures are expected to be realized in all the regions of the country.
