Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin opened the 16th Moscow Health Assembly. The results of the development of the capital health care in the expiring year will be summed up and the priority areas of work for the next year will be developed at the Assembly.

The Moscow Health Assembly is the decision-making body. It is attended by delegations from many hospitals and clinics and focuses on a specific health agenda. The main functions of the Moscow Health Assembly are to determine the healthcare policies, supervise financial policies, and review the proposed budget. The Moscow Health Assembly is held annually in Moscow.

Modern equipment helps healthcare professionals in Moscow hospitals perform sophisticated surgery, which used to be done only abroad. The city of Moscow will allocate additional funds to improve the quality of inpatient care for injuries, cardiovascular and oncological diseases. “We will try to invest a lot in the following areas: cardiovascular and oncological diseases, as well as traumatology. These are the most important and demanding areas. We make sure that our hospitals are equipped with the necessary equipment,” the Mayor said.

Sergey Sobyanin added that aiming to encourage doctors in the city a whole system of grants was founded and a new status was introduced— "the Moscow doctor". The Moscow Government introduced the new status and determined the level of knowledge to aspire, founded grants to the best policlinics and hospitals. And of course everything possible should be done to provide our medical specialists with all necessary equipment, devices and facilities, optimum work load and a decent salary.
