Moscow authorities plan to allocate some 25 billion rubles ($892.3mn) to repair healthcare facilities in 2011, and another 25 million rubles to replace medical equipment in them, a deputy Moscow mayor, in charge of education and healthcare issues, told the Izvestia daily.

Olga Golodets said 37% of medical institutions are in satisfactory condition, and the rest need to be repaired as soon as possible.

Earlier Prime Minister Vladimir Putin told the all-Russian forum of medical workers that a fourth of Russia’s healthcare facilities need a major overhaul.
