This review examines some of the possible reasons for poor population health in Russia and explores possible impediments to further improvements. In doing so it examines the current health system against the background of the reforms put in place in the 1990s and recent policy efforts to correct some of the most important difficulties. It also identifies some of the strengths and weaknesses of existing arrangements.

This chapter provides background material aimed at helping to understand better the context of current health policy in the Russian Federation and its recent development. It then goes on to describe the economic size of the health sector and key features of the Russian health care system, in particular the arrangements for the financing and supply of health care and public health services.
