2019 № 10 The main contours of the next reform of sectoral wage system in public health
The special attention paid to staffing is not accidental – it is a natural reaction of the state to the deterioration of the situation with the number of medical workers in state (municipal) institutions. In turn, the personnel deficit has increased due to the fact that in difficult economic conditions, many institutions have taken the path of reducing workers in order to increase the wages of the remaining. These steps directly contradicted the logic of the "May" presidential Decrees of 2012, but simplified the task of achieving the salaries of medical workers at the level stipulated by these Decrees. Therefore, a number of documents reflecting the strategy of development of health care, as well as the Instructions of the President contain measures aimed at correcting the situation, including by reforming the system of remuneration of employees of state (municipal) health care institutions. At the same time, it is important not just to implement the measures provided for in these documents, but also a specific implementation mechanism. Therefore, the article analyzes the possible positive and negative consequences of various options for the implementation of measures provided for by the Instructions and other documents.
