The Russian Federation has committed to assist WHO in adapting the Russian-language translation and implementing ICD-11 in the WHO European Region (including in the interest of the CIS member States). Federal Research Institute for Health Organization and Informatics of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation has established the ICD-11 working group, prepared a workplan on ICD-11 implementation, developed a list of nominees for the ICD-11 translation and submitted it to the WHO HQ (Dr. Robert Jacob), as well as developed proposals on a package of documents to organize an interdepartmental task force to support implementation of the ICD-11 adjusted translation within the Russian Federation.
