The All-Russian Oncological Social Programme "Equal Right to Live" has been supported by the RF State Duma

The All-Russian Oncological Social Programme "Equal Right to Live" has been supported by the RF State Duma

On Thursday, March 16 a round-table meeting "On Legal Support of Oncological Aid in the Russian Federation" took place at the Small Hall of the RF State Duma. During this meeting the All-Russian Oncological Social Programme "Equal Right to Live"  was introduced.
 
At present, there are more than 2 million and 300 thousand registered oncological patients in Russia. Oncological diseases hold second place after cardiovascular diseases among the causes of death in Russia. The level of early detection of cancer is extremely low. As a result, annually every third out of newly registered people (about 150 thousand people) is acknowledged to be a cancer invalid. Economic damage makes up more than 90 billion rubles a year, and in case the current cancer growth rate preserves, the damage may increase to 200 billion rubles to the year 2010.
 
"Nowadays oncological problems in our country are very acute, – said President of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences (RAMS), Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), Professor, Director of the Russian Research Centre of Oncology of the RAMS after the name of N. N. Blokhin Mikhail Davydov during the round-table meeting, - And it is despite the fact that Russia is among those few countries, which have the best oncological systems in the world in relation to its ideology, structure and the school that has been created in the Russian Federation. I am sure that if we allocate and distribute our forces and resources in the right way, and join the efforts of the state, scientists and politicians, we will be able to considerably influence such figures as the death rate from oncological diseases in the country".
 
According to the participants of the round-table meeting, Russian oncology requires high-quality training and retraining of personnel, modern medical equipment, high-quality medicines, it also needs to provide patients with medicines during their rehabilitation period and solve many other urgent problems. George Manikhas, Honoured Doctor of the Russian Federation, Head Doctor of St. Petersburg Municipal Oncological Centre: "To prescribe an expensive treatment to a young woman, one needs to turn her into an invalid or to send her to a hot spot. It is discrimination of patients: people with a diagnose but not those with possibilities should have the right to treatment".
 
The problems that Russian oncology is facing now will be solved by the All-Russian Oncological Programme "Equal Right to Live" that has been initiated by oncologists themselves.
Co-chairperson of the Supervisory Council of the Programme is President of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Academician of the RAS and the RAMS, Professor, Director of the Russian Research Centre of Oncology of the RAMS after the name of N. N. Blokhin Mikhail Ivanovich Davydov.
 
Arthur Chilingarov, Co-chairperson of the State Duma of the RF Federal Assembly (an extract from the address to the participants of the conference that took place following the round-table meeting):
"At present … the All-Russian Oncological Programme "Equal Right to Live" has been prepared and already supported by many Russian regions. I hope that successful promotion and development of this programme will allow to attract universal attention of the state and society to the problem of oncological diseases, to assist in making modern anticancer medicines available to every Russian patient".
 
Dmitriy Borisov, CEO of the All-Russian Oncological Programme "Equal Right to Live": "The main objective of the programme is to attract universal attention to the necessity to solve the existing problems connected with the diagnostics and treatment of oncological diseases, to provide for the exercise of  the Russian doctors’ rights to receive information about innovative methods of cancer diagnostics and treatment, to provide for the exercise of the Russian patients’ rights to receive professional medical aid. A number of educational arrangements for doctors, assistance in modernizing material and technical base of patient care institutions, a public information campaign aimed at forming a proper attitude to the disease are only some of the steps in the implementation of the programme. For this purpose we will attract extrabudgetary funds. For the moment, F. Hoffman-La Roche Ltd, a manufacturer of modern anticancer medicines, supports us".
 
11 Russian regions – Astrakhansk Region, Sverdlovsk Region, Irkutsk Region, Ryazan Region, Rostov, Tambovsk and Tulsa Regions, Khabarovsk Territory, St. Petersburg and the Republic of Tatarstan – have been chosen as "pilot" regions for the implementation of the programme. 
 
Tamara Pilschikova, Deputy Chairperson of Tula State Duma: "I think the attention that has been attracted here today – that of the public, specialists and representatives of the State Duma – will provoke a response, thus allowing to turn the public opinion to oncology. I do not hesitate that our state, with an active participation of scientists-oncologists and of the public, will change its attitude to such patients since they have an equal right to life and high-quality medical support. We will spare no effort to successfully implement the programme "Equal Right to Live" in Tula Region".
