Recent health policy developments in the Russian Federation
This chapter provides a short critical overview of recent developments in Russian health policy and the progressive shift away from shorter run policies towards the resolution of deeper structural issues. This chapter regroups these measures into five broad categories: i) restoring the capacity of the health system to provide quality care; ii) reducing mortality through prevention; iii) enhancing access; iv) financial sustainability, and v) more systemic reforms. Thus, under each heading more than one programme can be at play. This discussion demonstrates that the health care debate is evolving rapidly to palliate some of the problems of existing arrangements.
