Why is the Russian Federation not doing more to respond to its public health crisis, or if it is, why are its actions not more effective? This project aims to use historical analysis to retrace policy changes that have shaped today's Russian health care system. I pay special attention to the relationship today's medical care has to its Soviet counterpart, which originally bonded citizens to the state through public health measures. This project focuses on three models of health care; early Soviet institutionalization (1920-1950s), late Soviet disintegration (1960s-1980s), current re-institutionalization (1991-now).
