Defeat Cancer' city program. 23 medical institutions received payments.

The decision to provide grants to medical organisations for the most efficient preventive activity was made by the Moscow Government in 2017.

Annually, three mega-grants accounting for RUB 100 million are awarded in Moscow. They are allocated to the best Moscow hospitals that use advanced medical care technology.

Grants are also awarded for professional achievements. For example, specialists awarded the 'Moscow Doctor' status are to receive extra RUB 15,000 monthly. This honorary status is valid for five years.

Doctors who take part in various programs of the Moscow Healthcare Department receive monthly allowances to the salary. For example, general practitioners, therapists and paramedical personnel who treat patients with three or more chronic diseases receive incentive payments, RUB 20,000 for doctors and RUB 10,000 for paramedical personnel.

Moscow healthcare system places special focus on prevention and timely diagnosis of diseases.
