History of SIC
The Scientific Information Center begins with the Institute for Public Health Development (Moscow, Russia), created in 2007 as an autonomous non-profit research organization. The main activities are: research in the field of organization and economics of health care and pharmacy, medical information technology, the implementation of scientific information, educational and educational programs. On the basis of the Institute for Public Health Development in 2009, for the first time in Russia, the Scientific Information Center (SIC) for the prevention and treatment of viral infections was founded.
Since 2012, the SIC functions as an independent agency and carries out expertise in the field of health care, pharmaceuticals, socially significant diseases and medical technologies, including pharmacoeconomics and health economics.
The target audiences of the SIC are doctors, patients, the media, representatives of the legislative and executive authorities. Target nosologies are viral hepatitis, HIV infection, ARVI, influenza, herpes viral infections, human papillomavirus infections. Thus, the SIC is focused on common and socially significant infections and the implementation of innovative investment and consulting projects in the provision of high-tech medical care. The basis for the success of the SIC is a firm belief in its social significance and the timeliness of the appearance in the information space of clinical virology. Combining the efforts of medical specialists - infectious disease specialists, epidemiologists, virologists, immunologists-allergologists, gastroenterologists-hepatologists, dermatologists and general practitioners (therapists) is especially necessary during the period of reforms and transformations in the Russian economy - and we are moving from identifying problems of the healthcare system to its gradual and dynamic development.
