Panel session

Construction of a new health care model in the Arctic

Project*

 


The social and economic development of the Arctic and the pace of its development largely depend on the quality of life of both the indigenous population and the newcomer, who needs acclimatization and adaptation. The Northerners, in particular, indigenous peoples have a lower life expectancy, a higher incidence rate, including common non-communicable diseases.

Features of health care in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation are determined by the harsh climate, difficult transport access and low population density. Under such conditions, traditional models of the medical care organization illustrate its ineffectiveness, so it is necessary to develop and implement new approaches that fully take into account the specifics of the northern regions.

Issues for discussion:

  • Modernization of existing health care facilities and optimization of their network
  • Development of distance medicine
  • Prevention of diseases and implementation of healthy lifestyle programs
  • Introduction of new approaches and medical technologies to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of the Arctic Zone of the Russian Federation
  • Medical assistance to seamen and specialists in the oil and gas industries
  • Ensuring adaptation to arctic conditions
  • Development of sanitary aviation
  • Staffing with medical personnel
