Threats to national security in terms of health of the nation
are the emergence of epidemics and pandemics, the proliferation of HIV infection,
tuberculosis, drug addiction and alcoholism, and the availability of psychoactive
and psychotropic substances for illegal use.
Social Partnership Development Fund is a non-profit organization established in 2005 for capacity developing and improving quality of public health services in combating diseases of social significance.
The strategy of the Fund is based on the fact that a key factor in ensuring the sustainable development of public healthcare in the fight against diseases of social significance (such as HIV, tuberculosis, hepatitis B and C, malignant neoplasms, diabetes, sexually transmitted infections, mental and behavioural disorders, and hypertensive diseases) in the current conditions is the involvement of and the level of interaction between — the government, the medical and scientific community, the private sector and the civil society. One sector through its own efforts can develop and implement specific initiatives, but a multi-sectoral approach means that the resources and capabilities of each sector can be consolidated synergistically to achieve a common goal. Multi-sectoral partnership in dealing with healthcare challenges of the national scale to combat diseases of social significance entails a professional and systematic approach to solving tasks and a common responsibility to ensure that adopted measures succeed. Given that the problem of diseases of social significance has become global in nature — and Russia is facing a plenty of challenges in healthcare — in management, education, science, patients’ rights, quality of care, etc., — breakthrough in these fields can only be achieved through the combined efforts of all sectors.
Our Fund’s mission is to improve quality of life through the constructive collaboration of all stakeholders of public healthcare.
