Source : Agencies / 25 Apr 2014

Russian Federation has approved an alcohol and drug prevention policy until 2020. The new legislation goes beyond the traditional focus on health-care delivery to include a concern about population health, setting out the goals of reducing mortality in working ages, especially by lowering rates of injuries and alcohol poisoning, as well as reducing infant and maternal mortality. It also highlights the need for effective action against “socially determined conditions” such as drug addictions, smoking, hazardous drinking, diseases, tuberculosis, and AIDS.
