Health care system financing in the Russian Federation: dynamics, prognoses, comparison with developed countries
Despite the challenges posed by consequences of the global pandemic, achieving the country's national development objectives remains a strategic direction of public health policy.
For sustainable population growth and an increase in average expectation of life in Russian Federation, which should reach 78 years in 2030, it is imperative to ensure availability and good quality of medical care, which in turn directly depend on the level of government funding for healthcare.
This article analyzes main parameters of healthcare financing in the Russian Federation in the period 2012-2020, and assesses them for the future 2022-2024, in comparison with parameters of developed EU countries. The article presents main conclusions on persistence of low parameters of government funding for healthcare in the Russian Federation, which exclude possibility of solving the acute problems of shortage of health care workers, insufficient free drug provision of population, insufficient volumes of free medical care and become a major setback to implementation of measures aimed at achieving national development goals of the Russian Federation.
