Abstract:This review of the Russian health system was undertaken at the request of the Council of the OECD within the context of the request by the Russian authorities to accede to the Organisation. Thus, this study forms part of a broader effort to assess the coherence of policies of the Russian Federation with those of OECD member countries. The development of health outcomes in the Russian Federation has contrasted sharply with developments in the OECD area over the last quarter of a century. This report follows on the OECD Reviews of the Health Systems of Korea (2003), Mexico (2005), Finland (2005), Switzerland (2006 and 2011) and Turkey (2008).
