Problems of social conditionality of population health are a traditional topic to discuss both in medical and social sciences. Availability of health care is considered from the perspective of social factors of macro level, representing the widest context of social factors to health risk. In Russia, the increasing availability of health care for the population is considered as a priority of social policy. The authors of the review publications consider the trends of accessibility of medical care to the population of contemporary Russia. It is noted in the article that currently the availability and quality of medical care, pretentiousness of state assurances for free medical care, and their imbalance with available financial resources are considered as one of the major Russian health care problems.
