"We should stop applying gross approach to our population. Medical industry personification is not only individualization of medical approaches but also treatment of each person as a separate universe," she said.
The minister also drew attention to the fact that it is necessary to change people's way of thinking and their attitude to health.
"It is over a half of all issues connected to healthcare service. If we do not establish a direct contact with the population that will include explanation, formation of psychology and fashion of behaviour, we will not get a good result," Veronika Skvortsova stressed.
She added that one cannot help taking into account such risk factors as alcoholism and smoking.
"In order to improve the situation, we should change people's attitude to the life, we should teach them to enjoy the life itself instead of getting pleasure from artificial situations," the Minister of Health of Russia noted.
