By 2020, Russia plans to spend on the financing of the program "Development of Health" 27 trillion rubles, or an average of 4.2 percent of GDP per year. It is about these tools in the prediction of long-term socio-economic development of Russia until 2030, laid out on the website of Economic Development.
"The total amount of state financial support for the program in the years 2013-2020 at current prices amounts to 27 trillion rubles (an average of 4.42 percent of GDP in the respective years)", — the document says. This figure is higher than anticipated in the original version of the state program, which dealt with the allocation of 3.5 percent of GDP on health care. According to the OECD, developed countries spend on health care from 6.3 (minimum) to 17.6 (maximum) per cent of GDP.
Among the priorities of the state program "Development of Health" was listed disease prevention, the promotion of healthy lifestyles and health resort treatment of citizens, protection of maternal and child health, the development of medical rehabilitation, the introduction of innovative methods of diagnosis and treatment, improving the provision of specialized and high-tech care, as well as addressing the shortage of personnel in health care.
It is planned that in the execution of the program in 2020, the average life expectancy rose to 76.1 years, while the death rate — decrease. In particular, it should decrease mortality from diseases of the circulatory system (up to 508.7 cases per 100,000 people), from cancer (up to 178.2 per 100 thousand people), TB (up to 8.7 per 100,000 persons), from road accidents (to 7.6 per 100,000 people), and the infant mortality rate (up to 5.61 for 1000 births). It is assumed that after seven years, the Russians will consume less alcohol (no more than 6.9 liters per capita) and smoking (tobacco will consume only 16 percent of the adult population).
For comparison, the death rate from cancer of the U.S. population over 20 years has been reduced by 20 percent and in 2009 reached a rate of 173.1 cases per 100,000 population. These are the findings of the report by the American Cancer Society.
