Russia has a comprehensive public health system as well as additional private health insurance programmes available to its citizens. Foreign nationals visiting Russia are guaranteed the right to health protection in conformity with the national legislation and relevant international agreements. Medical services are normally provided under a contract of voluntary medical insurance. Foreign visitors can enjoy a complete range of essential health care facilities, including first-rate clinics of diverse specialisation and twenty-four hour first aid services.
During the Games, certain categories of foreign nationals as designated by the IOC will be granted free medical care at all the Olympic sites and in dedicated hospitals.
