Putin signed the law on the parents access to data on adolescent health

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a Federal law granting parents the right to receive information about the health of young children after they reach the age of 15.

The corresponding document was published on the official Internet portal of legal information.

Changes are proposed to the law "About bases of health protection of citizens in the Russian Federation" in the part of the rights of minors under the age of 15.

The law extends the right of parents (legal representatives) to obtain information about the health of minors after they reach the boundaries of older adolescents.

Earlier this initiative was made by the Samara regional Duma, which submitted a relevant bill to the state Duma in 2018.
