Prevention and control of epidemics in Russia
2020 was marked by the beginning and spread of a new world pandemic - coronavirus disease 2019, which affected the health of many people and significantly influenced public institutions and the global economy.
Considering these events, the Presidential Library formed a collection dedicated to the history of epidemics in Russia. The presented archival materials, essays, and modern studies describe epidemics of various diseases, protection measures, and history of the development of a system for the infectious disease prevention. The sections devoted to plague, cholera, smallpox and tuberculosis are of particular interest. A separate part of the collection includes current official documents on the disease prevention, modern health and epidemiological requirements and rules of the Russian Federation.
