MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Prosecutor’s Office of the Perm Territory checked the information posted on the Internet about the violation of the rights of seriously ill children.
It has been established that 5 disabled children living in the region are in need for health reasons to be provided with expensive medicines.
Preferential drug provision for minors in the manner prescribed by law was not carried out due to the fact that drugs are not included in the state register of drugs, since they are not registered in the territory of the Russian Federation.
Parents were forced to purchase expensive drugs at their own expense or with the help of charitable organizations.
In order to comply with social guarantees for children with disabilities to provide all medicines for free, including at the expense of the constituent entity of the Russian Federation, the regional prosecutor’s office filed claims in court, and also informed the governor of the Perm region about the problems of preferential drug provision for children.
Thanks to the intervention of the prosecutor’s office, the rights of disabled children have been restored. According to the statements of claim, they are recognized as having the right to free provision of drugs, the regional ministry of health is charged with providing children with the necessary drugs in doses recommended by an authorized medical organization.
All children are provided with the necessary medicines for a long time.
