Creation of medical institutions in the system of MVD has a long history. One of the peculiarities of development of these institutions in the system of MVD consists in the fact that before the October revolution in 1917 the Ministry of Internal Relations not only provided medical care of personnel of the Ministry but also administered the medical work of the whole country. Earlier in 16-17 centuries this task was accomplished by a department of a Russian tsar, which was called Aptekarsky prikaz. In time of emperor Peter I medical providing of the population was given to the medical chancellery (1725-1763) and in the period of 1763-1802 the medical collegium was at the head of the system of medical care. At present time medical providing of personnel in the system of MVD is given to the Medical Administration. The Medical Administration is a structural subdivision of the central machinery of MVD of Russia. It organizes medical providing of personnel and employees of organs of internal relations, military men and citizen staff of home troops of MVD of Russia, pensioners of MVD, members of their families, cadets and listeners of educational institutions of MVD of Russia.
