About priorities and key indicators
High-quality and timely implementation of national projects should be an absolute priority. Such a goal for the South Urals authorities set the head of the region Alexei Teksler.
The national project "Demography" is being implemented in the region. This was told by the head of the department of social services of the Ministry of Social Relations of the Chelyabinsk region Alexander Gusev.
The project includes five programs. These are financial support for families at the birth of children, promotion of employment for women - creation of conditions for pre-school education for children under three years of age, development and implementation of a program of system support and improvement of the quality of life of senior citizens, formation of a system of citizens' motivation for a healthy lifestyle, including healthy nutrition and the rejection of bad habits, the creation of conditions for physical education and sports for all categories and groups of the population.
The total amount of funds allocated from the regional and federal budgets for the implementation of the national project "Demography" until 2024 will amount to 11 billion 914 million 840 thousand rubles.
Special attention deserves the subproject "Older generation". Its goal is to increase the expected healthy life expectancy to 67 years.
In Magnitogorsk, the number of elderly people in the city’s population is 24% (more than 100 thousand people) and is constantly increasing.
Today, outpatient care for older people is provided on a territorial basis. Dispensary observation of this category of patients is carried out in the territorial polyclinics by district physicians.
Inpatient medical care for elderly people is provided in 36 geriatric beds. In total, last year, 872 people underwent treatment. In addition, hospitalization of patients of this age group is carried out on beds of a different profile depending on the evidence.
In order to prevent diseases and develop a healthy lifestyle, a clinical examination is carried out. In 2018, over 14 thousand people over 60 years of age underwent examinations, which is 28.4% of the total number of people who went for a medical examination. Risk factors were identified in some senior citizens: elevated blood pressure - 144 people, elevated blood glucose - 31 people, overweight - 172 people, low physical activity - 264 people, poor nutrition - 247 people.
