Since 2010 All-Russian Union of patients organizes All-Russian Congress of patients, supported by the Ministry of Health of Russian Federation, Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare (Roszdravnadzor) and other key institutions.

The main aims of the Congress are: to develop the arrangement of communication between government and society in the sphere of health care, to improve accessibility of medical help for citizens and to raise the quality of the service in the whole system of health care in Russian Federation.

Congress is the platform, uniting society, professionals and government. By their joint efforts, it became the largest national healthcare event.

On the first day of the Congress a plenary meeting is traditionally held with participation of the Russian Minister of Health and the heads of other federal institutions.

Panel discussions on the up-to-date problems are organized with participation of the heads of the Ministry of health care, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Federal Antimonopoly Service, the Federal Service of Supervision in the sphere of health care, the Federal Fund of Mandatory Medical Insurance and other relevant pubic and state institutions, representatives of the United Nations and World Health Organization, the Public Chamber, All-Russian Popular Front, as well as representatives of the patient community and leading experts in a large number of different fields of science, pharmaceutical industry, insurance and social protection.

Congress is the platform for modeling the technologies of patient movement and social participation in the sphere of health care. We hold educational seminars on processes of organizing the work of patient societies, interaction between government and non-commercial organizations, improving quality of health services and its accessibility for the citizens. Representatives of social unions for the protection of the rights of patients at health care institutions coordinate their actions.

In general, the Congress sums up the results of public-state interaction in healthcare sphere of the last year and sets guidelines for the next period.

As the result of summarizing all the information given at the Congress, the recommendations for the development of the main directions of the healthcare system are worked out. These directions are sent to relevant authorities and to the President of Russian Federation.
