The Chairman of the Council of the Federation stressed in her speech that in view of modern demands not only children's polyclinics but also children's hospitals need significant modernization. ”It is necessary to pay special attention to the reconstruction of children's republican and regional hospitals. Such a program should be developed and implemented within the framework of the Decade of childhood,“ she suggested.
Valentina Matvienko also noted that, in general, in recent years, the health sector has achieved positive results. As an example, she recalled that the law on telemedicine had entered into force this year. ”Easier access to telemedicine services will enable consultation of patients in the most remote areas. And it is very important that the standards of telemedicine assistance should be uniform throughout the country.“
