Welcome to the National Research Center for Preventive Medicine of the Ministry of Healthcare of the Russian Federation!
The modern history of the National Research Center for Preventive Medicine started in 1988 when the Institute of Preventive Cardiology as a part of the All-Soviet Union Cardiology Scientific Center of the USSR Academy of Medical Sciences was reorganized into an independent Federal State Institution. All these years the work of the Center has been focused on the research and analysis of the national epidemiological situation, development and implementation of preventive programs for cardiovascular diseases and other non-communicable diseases that have common risk factors.
Over the years, Center has played a significant role in the development of preventive medicine in Russian Federation and abroad and has established close contacts with leading international organizations working in the field of prevention of non-communicable diseases: World Health Organization, the European Network for the promotion of Health-Enhancing Physical Activity, the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease and other major research centers in Europe, the USA and the CIS.
Research departments of the Center have always been on the cutting edge of scientific research, playing an important role in organizing large-scale international studies and projects. The results of this work formed the basis for modern approaches to the prevention of chronic non-communicable diseases and are being introduced into the healthcare system in Russia and other countries.
Today the National Research Centre for Preventive Medicine solves a very topical task of preserving and strengthening the health of Russian population, reduction of morbidity and mortality from major chronic non-communicable diseases.
Our team conducts epidemiological monitoring of major risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, establishes and implements new methods and organizational forms of primary and secondary prevention of chronic non-communicable diseases. The Center is involved in the development and implementation of strategies to create a preventive environment in Russia.
Center is one of a few institutions which conduct educational programs in the field of preventive medicine. For the last 25 years Center has trained thousands of physicians.
