The President said, in particular, in his telegram:
“The League has built up rich experience over these last years and confidently established its place as an effective, influential, and much-needed organisation.
Making our people healthier and developing medical science are rightly among government policy’s top priorities. There is an undisputed need for greater cooperation between the authorities, public organisations and business circles in this area. In this context, the League’s work deserves the highest praise. The League’s programmes and major projects and initiatives carried out in many different parts of Russia help to educate the public, promote a healthy way of life, and improve the demographic situation. You do a great deal also to spread the use of modern effective diagnosis, prevention and treatment methods in medical practice.”
