cancer patients in Russia will be able to be treated with imported drugs. This follows from the draft order of the Ministry of health, published on the portal of legal acts.

the Ministry noted the increase of complaints both from patients and from doctors. And those and others dissatisfied with the existing rules of procurement of drugs. In order to import substitution, the supply of foreign drugs is very limited. The health Ministry stressed that this situation has a negative impact on the appointment of individual therapy to patients with cancer. In the case of adoption of amendments to the procurement will be allowed to import medications. Moreover, the tender documentation is planned to specify the active substance and the trade name drug.
