Marina Bogoslovskaya asked Roszdravnadzor to allow the importation of medicines for a charity event in Yakutia

 Member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation Marina Bogoslovskaya appealed to Roszdravnadzor to allow the importation of medicines for a charity event in Yakutia, press service of the Public Chamber reported.


A charitable medical mission with the participation of doctors from three countries is planned for the end of August in Yakutsk and a number of other settlements of the Republic. Organizers plan to examine at no charge from 600 to 900 patients of socially disadvantaged groups (people with disabilities, veterans, large families, orphans and children left without parental care and others), as well as settlements affected by natural disasters.


As humanitarian aid participants plan to give medications to the amount of 150 to 200 thousand dollars.


In the mission to participate 6 doctors from the Medical Center at the University Kenkhi (Seoul, South Korea), 3 doctors of St Luke's Medical Center (Philippines) and 10-15 doctors from the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).


The Public Chamber of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) supported this charitable medical mission. According to Member of the RF Public Chamber and the Public Chamber of Yakutia Marina Bogoslovskaya, the problem is that some medicines that doctors are planning to bring are not in the list of the State Register of the Russian Federation, and, accordingly, it will take time to pick up the domestic counterparts of these medicines.


“These approvals will take more than one month. But we are very short of time. This event is unique, and we need to do everything possible to help this mission take place ", - said Member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation.
