Abstract

This research discusses the underlying causes behind high mortality rates in contemporary Russia. By analyzing various psychological, social, medical, economic, and governmental factors, this research seeks to understand the correlation between Russia’s increasing mortality rates and the overall decline in healthcare accessibility for its citizens. Russia’s mortality rates are significantly higher as compared to other European countries, which suggests that a reevaluation of its healthcare system is necessary. By examining inefficient free medical care, improper allocation of funding, barriers in medical care engagement, substance abuse, and more, this research hopes to offer solutions to a leading problem in contemporary Russia.
