Because of the actions of the Ministry of health in 2016, 5.4 million people have not received high-tech medical aid quota, and 40% of the funds allocated for the purchase of vaccines, went to the drug available in abundance, were recorded by the auditors.

The chamber has studied the activities of the Ministry of health in 2016, and sent the test results to the Prosecutor General and the Investigative Committee, the conclusion, which is at the disposal of RBC. The audit office concluded that the budget statements of the Ministry of health unreliable.

Thus, the Ministry did not take into account “intangible assets” totaling $ 121,3 million roubles and has not conducted an inventory under construction. And since the Ministry of health brought to their institutions 1.6 billion rubles., 5.4 million people in 2016, has not received high-tech medical care (this is transactions and other complex medical procedures quota), was found by the auditors.

The Ministry of health RBC said that the house pointed to the real, and potential patients that, in the opinion of the Department, is incorrect. In addition, this amount was issued to the Ministry in November 2016. “So later, bringing new volumes of funds made it impossible for their direction to Finance additional volumes of high-tech care. But these funds will be used for the same purposes in the current year”, — reported in a press-Department service.

Many citizens really can’t get what they treatment, but the reason is not that the Ministry of health does not have time to transfer the funds and that the money is not enough, says RBC Director of the Institute of health Economics Larisa Popovich. “And it already questions not to the Ministry of health, and financing high-tech medical aid (VMP). Federal agencies providing such assistance, idle,” she said. In 2016 at VMP has been allocated about 96 billion rubles., said Popovich.

Approximately RUB 4.6 billion for vaccines against pneumococcus, according to audit chamber, were spent in vain.

In the Chechen Republic and Tyumen region on January 1, 2017, was a two-year supply of the drug, in five regions, for half a year and another 12 — about a year, etc., noted the auditors. Regions may not be able to use these medicines until the end of their shelf life. In addition, these RUB 4.6 billion represent 40% of total funding procurement of vaccines in 2016.

Most likely, this is a common miscalculation, involves the General Director of the analytical company in the field of pharmaceuticals DSM Group Sergey shuljak.

“The Department purchased vaccines according to pre-calculated requirements, which were not given the stocks of the regions. I do not think that the Ministry of health specifically purchased an expensive drug to increase the manufacturer’s profit”, — he said. The Ministry of health insist that to draw conclusions about the demand for the vaccine until the completion of the year is impossible. In addition, the Agency indicate that, first, took into account the balances in the regions, and secondly, the Ministry may reallocate the remnants of expensive drugs between the subjects as necessary.

Because of the actions of the Ministry of health budget has lost 5.6 bln RUB, said in the chamber. The Ministry underestimated the profit research center. of academician G. A. Ilizarov in 2015. Other subordinate institutions of the Ministry of health violate the law on the accounting statements. For example, the Siberian Federal biomedical research centre. E. N. Meshalkin annually adopts a new scheme of accounting, although it should be formed once and used from year to year. The health Ministry told RBC that the Ministry has taken steps to remove all comments of the chamber relating to the financial statements.

Did not have time last year, the Ministry of health to be completed in a period of reconstruction and construction of four institutions: St. Petersburg state chemical-pharmaceutical Academy, City children’s clinical hospital No. 3 of Volgograd state medical University and the surgical unit at children’s hospital in Tambov.

Following the results of check the audit chamber has directed not only appeal to the TFR and the Prosecutor General’s office, but “information letter” to the Federal Antimonopoly service and the conclusion of the state Duma and the Federation Council.

The test results can be called standard, says the head of the Russian branch of the international anti-corruption organization Transparency International in Saint-Petersburg Dmitry Sukharev. The chamber, though not constantly, but periodically sends the results of their audits to law enforcement agencies, he said.
