Minister of government agency Valentina Chentsova called it “non-state approach”. Closure of children health centers is not conducive nor to the idea of improvement of health of the younger generation neither to strengthen the positive image of the Stavropol Territory. Due to the scale of the phenomenon Russian Government developed a national strategy for children for 2013-2017. But the owners of sanatoriums say that children sanatorium treatment is unprofitable in Rissia.
