We come across the regular publications that identify the importance of improvement of doctor's access to health care by the way of reducing various kinds of barriers. However, despite a wide range of expert opinions in this, the existing barriers are not clearly defined. The purpose of our review work is to systematize the accumulated materials in this area, 44 sources of foreign literature were analyzed in the electronic databases MEDLINE® (1981-2016) and CINAHL (1982-2010). Analysis of the literature shows that there is not enough information, despite the importance of studying the adherence of doctors to treatment in order to establish cause-and-effect relationships and scientific justification of preventive measures. When studying the compliance of foreign doctors, it is likely to extrapolate the results of research to the doctors of our country.
