Russia has a severe access to medicines problem. Of the 142 million people in Russia, only 20 million are eligible for outpatient medicines coverage as part of the Supplementary Medicines Cover (DLO) programme. More than half of the eligible opt-out for cash. The current government's goal is to eventually establish universal outpatient medicines coverage. This study explores pharmaceutical policy options for Russia to improve efficiency and access to medicines. We employ a conceptual framework to explain Russia's priorities and the weighing of each health policy component in developing policy approaches.
