MOSCOW, June 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will be allocating $4.4 billion as an annual contribution to the World Health Organisation (WHO) until 2018, says an instruction the Russian government posted on the official portal of legal information.
“[Russia’s government] will donate up to $4.4 billion year on year from 2014 to 2018 from the federal budget revenues to the World Health Organisation as a target contribution that will aim to finance a joint project boosting the healthcare systems in what concerns prevention of and control over non-infectious diseases,” the document reads.
The instruction tells the Russian Health Ministry to provide financing of spending in 2014 from the budget revenues specified for the Finance Ministry in the section of the budget designated as "International Relations and International Cooperation".
The Russian ministries of finance and healthcare have been ordered to envision the necessary revenues in the draft federal budgets for the years 2015 to 2018 for funding these obligations.
