Pamfilova concerns over dragging out hospitalisation of seriously ill child

17 February 2015

Back on 12 February, Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia Ella Pamfilova sent a telegram to Minister of Healthcare of Russia Veronika Skvortsova with a request to assist in facilitating urgent hospitalisation of a child Yaroslav M.

The Commissioner’s petition was based on an application from mother of the child, who came to Moscow from Perm region to have her son provided with medical help. The boy underwent surgery and was recommended radiotherapy at the Russian Scientific Centre of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine not later than on 10–11 February. However, the hospitalisation has been delayed for unknown reasons. Meanwhile, the boy’s health is at hazard, and his family is in a complicated financial situation.

Unfortunately, this is not the only case when parents of seriously ill children face their misfortune one-on-one, having failed to wait until the state provides competent medical aid in time.
