In order to unite together efforts and resources of two industries for more effective social policy implementation and improvement of the population quality of life, at the end of 2013 the Ulyanovsk region Government made a decision on creation of united healthcare and social development department.
Over the past few years joint efforts of two ministries allowed to break negative demographic tendencies, that previously dominated in our region. We reduced natural population decline rates thanks to increase in birth rate. This tendency became a fixed condition and allows to predict further improvement of the main demographic indicators.
Our main task today is to fix positive tendencies and to work strenuously that the level of health care and social development in the Ulyanovsk region became one of the best in Russia.
