Managing the Body’s Resources to Achieve a Long and Happy Life

Session sponsored by National Medical Research Centre for Rehabilitation and Balneology of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation

Our society is placing ever greater emphasis on the philosophy of a long, active and fulfilling life. The key biological factors of youth are strong physical and mental health, fitness for work, stress-resistance and the outward appearance of youthfulness. Anti-ageing medicine is designed to work holistically, addressing a number of factors. It doesn’t fight the signs of ageing, but slows down age-related changes to the body by predicting, monitoring and managing an individual’s health and ageing process, as well as strengthening the capabilities of the body’s protective resources that fight against both infection and age-related processes. The modern paradigm of personalized and preventive medicine lies at the heart of anti-ageing therapy. Thanks to advances in molecular biology, immunology, genetics and other areas of science, there has been a fundamental shift in the effectiveness of strategies to manage ageing processes.
• To what extent does the Russian healthcare system meet global standards of medical care aimed at increasing life expectancy? What preventive measures to reduce the risks of age-related illness are provided for in law at the level of government and individual regions today?
• Could a significant increase in life expectancy become a problem for the economy and healthcare, leading to new healthcare priorities?
• What innovative research-based and practical developments in genetics, immunology, biology and other medical sciences can drive innovations in the prevention of age-related illnesses?
• What should the average person know about their body and what basic disease prevention knowledge should people put into practice in their lives? Which healthy habits can help prevent ageing?
• How do western and eastern approaches to the search for life-extending technologies differ? Which achievements in western medicine and the development of traditional eastern medicine are driving the search for synergy in anti-ageing medicine?

Demographics in Russia: New Сhallenges and a Сomprehensive Аpproach


The key goals of the national Demography project are to stop the decline in the birth rate and increase life expectancy in Russia. This requires concentrated efforts from the state and society as well as a pivotal revision of certain provisions of the demographic policy. Improvements to the system of equal access to medical care, the policy of social guarantees, and economic stability are essential sufficient factors in reversing the steadily declining birth rate, but they are not enough. A trend of strengthening family values and having as many children as possible needs to be created in society, especially among people of reproductive age. This is a major task for the government in which public institutions, NPOs, and the media should be involved. Building economic and social support levers for the young generation that could stop the outflow of young people from the regions and motivate them to create large families in the land of their ancestors is an important political, economic, cultural, educational, and social task that should be addressed at the federal level as well as at the level of the local authorities.
• What measures is the government taking and ready to take in terms of legislation to stop negative birth rates?
• How can we converge medical, economic, social, cultural, and educational aspects and achieve an integrated approach to solving demographic problems not only through highly effective medical care and socioeconomic measures, but the cultivation of family institutions and healthy values?
• How can we solve the problem of the uneven socioeconomic development of the regions in the context of solving demographic problems? Is it possible to scale good practices across the country? What is the role of the regional authorities?
• What measures will help create a trend in society for a healthy lifestyle, healthcare, and the desire to have a family and children?

Children’s Health: Enhancing the Effectiveness of Healthcare

Session sponsored by Vernoe Napravlenie ANPO

In an effort to be more efficient, the healthcare system is constantly looking for new approaches to protecting children’s health, including approaches that require more attention and specific care. One way to develop healthcare is a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach, which not only ensures that a patient interacts with doctors with multiple areas of expertise, but also specialists in related profiles, such as social workers, teachers, or psychologists, and this ensures the best result. A multidisciplinary team demonstrates a high level of efficiency in cases where it is essential to optimize the diagnosis and treatment processes, find an unconventional approach, reduce the risks of complications, and form a comprehensive strategy for long-term care. Children with severe and sometimes incurable diagnoses continue to live, and any approach to helping such children should cover all facets of life, including not only helping the child, but also providing the whole family with the necessary support. However, in practice, the specialists one needs are not always available, and the actions of the interested parties are often not coordinated.
• How should we build an optimal healthcare system that takes into account the interests of all parties and, above all, patients?
• What problems are hindering the integration of an interdisciplinary approach into everyday medical practice and how can we eliminate interdepartmental barriers to introducing the principle of multidisciplinary interaction?
• Which countries have a standard practice of using multidisciplinary teams to care for seriously ill children? How can we transfer multidisciplinary practices to Russia?
• What successful multidisciplinary approach practices are used in Russia, including in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District?
• How and where should we organize the training of specialists of multidisciplinary teams?
• How can we attract the necessary personnel and get them settled in the regions?
