In 2024, the government budgeted 80 billion rubles for the modernization of primary healthcare. As part of the program, regions will be able to purchase mobile medical systems.
The government has expanded the parameters of the primary healthcare modernization program, the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers reported on December 25. The federal budget for 2024 provides 80 billion rubles for these purposes. Territories where the regional “primary” modernization program operates will be able to receive the subsidy. From next year within its framework, for the first time, regions will be able to purchase mobile medical complexes.
The federal project for the modernization of primary healthcare until 2025 includes plans to carry out major repairs at 3,973 healthcare facilities and build 7,324 new ones, equip medical institutions in settlements with a population of up to 50 thousand people, and purchase 130 thousand units of equipment. 550 billion rubles were allocated for these purposes (from 2021 to 2025). According to the Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova, if the program end date is moved to 2030, the volume of funding could reach 1.3 trillion rubles.
Golikova stated that the program has a qualitative impact on health care indicators. According to her, this is an extremely popular project, since primary care “has the greatest contact with the population, where diseases are detected, where preventive work is carried out.”
