ST. PETERSBURG, June 21 (Itar-Tass) - Russian government’s spending for public health will likely reach 6% of the GDP by 2020, Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets said Friday on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum /SPIEF/.
“To have a good system of healthcare, we should be spending about 6% for it and the figure is featured in all our plans,” she said. This amount of spending is sufficient for setting up “a reliable, fair system” in that sphere.
“We hope we’ll attain that parameter by 2020,” Golodets added.
Presently, the government is spending for healthcare in Russia around 4% of the GDP.
