Rich profile program and internship fair for doctors awaits the participants of the direction «Health and welfare»

The meeting of the working group on the direction of the discussion program of the Festival of youth and students «Health and welfare» was held on March 6 in the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation in Moscow

The representatives of different departments of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, the Regional Advisor to UNAIDS and the Festival Directorate took part in the discussion of the concept.

Together they outlined new ideas to improve health care, which can be implemented within the framework of the Festival, and complex medical care in Sochi, including the establishment of health centers, voluntary vaccination and the involvement of volunteers-doctors. The discussion and educational platform will be dedicated to global health issues, exchange of experiences between young people from different countries of the world. Among the ideas: profile lectures by famous speakers in surgery, therapy, pediatrics, dentistry, psychology, where will be discussed modern methods of diagnosis and treatment, as well as the analysis of clinical cases. Also, they have discussed the creation of interactive zones: mobile clinic, fair of internships for doctors, debates and many other things. It's expected to sign a series of memorandum in conjunction with the WHO at the Festival.

The goal of the working group is to create a modern and interesting program for young professionals and representatives of the professional medical community. Let us recall that the program is created considering the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, developed by the UN, which must be achieved before 2030. Great attention is paid to the topics of health, general welfare and improving the quality of life.

Pirogov, the WHO Regional Office for Europe, the All-Russia Social movement "Volunteers-physicians" became the partners of the direction. Today the active development of 10 thematic platforms is going on. Among them: economy and entrepreneurship, education, science and technologies, health and welfare, culture and history, politics and international security, ecology, civil society and volunteering, journalism and media, territorial development, architecture and urbanism. Potential participants of the Festival take part in the development: within the framework of weekly design thinking sessions they discuss and model the program with the partners of the WFYS 2017.
