Svetlana Leontyeva became the Minister of Health of the Amur Region. Previously, she served as the head of the department.

As EastRussia was informed in the press service of the regional government, the order on personnel appointment was signed by the governor of the Amur Region, Vasily Orlov. Perhaps Leontyeva will become one of the last regional health ministers in Russia, appointed without the approval of the federal Ministry of Health. 

Svetlana Leontyeva began acting as Minister of Health in April of this year, after her predecessor, Yevgenia Zharnovnikova wrote a statement to be dismissed of their own free will. It happened in the midst of the first wave of coronavirus infection.

Before becoming and. about. Svetlana Leontyeva served for a month as the first deputy minister of health, and before that, for four years she headed the Amur regional oncological dispensary, where she came from the post of deputy chief physician of a regional clinical hospital.

The appointment of Svetlana Leontyeva coincided with the introduction to the State Duma of the country of a bill on obligatory approval with the Federal Ministry of Health of candidates for the posts of heads of regional health authorities. Such a procedure already existed, but was abolished in 2015. In the context of the reform of the primary care of the industry, this topic has regained relevance in connection with the coronavirus pandemic.
