ST. PETERSBURG INTERNATIONAL HEALTH FORUM OPENED IN EXPOFORUM CONVENTION AND EXHIBITION CENTRE

The project combined five specific exhibitions for the fourth time: MEDIZ. Medicine and Health, Pharmacy, Bioindustry, Primary Wellness Tourism and Beauty Medicine.

Around 100 companies from 14 countries presented medical devices and equipment, pharmaceuticals, medical and health services, biotechnology and services in the field of aesthetic medicine at the ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Firstly, representatives of Saint Petersburg’s Health Committee addressed the meeting at their stand: delegates from the City Prophylaxis Center, Obligatory Health Insurance Fund, City’s Health Information Service and Health Centers told visitors about their activities.

“This exhibition is an invaluable experience for professionals. It helps reconsider existing issues facing the health service and learn about related state-of-the-art developments,” said the vice-governor of Saint Petersburg Olga Alexandrovna Kazanskaya at the official opening. “A great number of specialists take part in this exhibition each year: experts from branch ministries and departments, prominent scientists from Russia and Saint Petersburg, famous clinical physicians and medical practitioners. They are all interested in state-of-the-art developments in public health services”.

Sirotkin Oleg Gennadyevich, Head of the Healthy Lifestyle department of Saint Petersburg’s Health Committee, introduced the activities of the Health Centers to VIP visitors. “29 Health Centers (22 for adults and 7 for children) have been launched in Saint Petersburg under the National Health Program. They are all provided with modern equipment to assess non-communicable disease risks. Any person can be examined in the Center for free under the Compulsory Health Insurance program”, emphasised Oleg Gennadyevich.

PJSC Krasnogvardeets, a century-old Saint Petersburg manufacturer of medical equipment, introduced its anesthetic respiratory apparatus being tested in 30 Russian regions. “About 4,000 anesthesias were carried out on a nationwide scale; the longest operation lasted 12 hours, while the shortest one took 3 hours. The apparatus has been proven in various fields – cardiology and visceral surgeries for babies weighing from 2 kg, in children’s hospitals. It is receiving good feedback,” remarked the Plant’s Chief Designer Armen Shekoyan.

The Master-Med company (Saint Petersburg), official distributor of Mindray, China’s medical equipment supplier, announced its proprietary solution unrivalled throughout the world – a multi-modal monitor for intracranial pressure control.

The private Spanish Hospital Clinica Benidorm (Costa Blanca) presented its services at the “Primary Wellness Tourism” exhibition. This healthcare facility offers over 40 medical services including institutional examination, emergency and outpatient care. Most of the clinic’s patients come from abroad; this facility is gradually becoming one of the leading medical tourism centers.

“A distinctive feature of the St. Petersburg International Health Forum is the fact it unites efforts both in health care and in other social spheres with the single aim of improving the population’s health and quality of life. The Forum supports close relations with the Healthy Cities movement, which comprises around 1,400 cities from 32 world states. Saint Petersburg is a Russian capital within this movement”, highlighted the Chairman of St. Petersburg’s Health Committee Valery Mikhaylovich Kolabutin.
