Density of doctors in Russia 2010-2018

In 2018, there were 47.9 doctors per 10 thousand population in Russia. The density of doctors in the country gradually increased in recent years after a decline in 2015, when the figure fell to 45.9 medical professionals per 10 thousand residents.

How many doctors work in Russia?

The number of doctors in the country grew by 30 thousand between 2015 and 2018. In total, approximately 704 thousand physicians were employed in healthcare in Russia during that year. In 2019, over 565 thousand medical doctors worked in the public sector, including educational, scientific, cultural, healthcare, and social services organizations.

Why is doctors’ density important during COVID-19?

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, countries with a low density of physicians have been suffering from limited healthcare resources and unequal access to medical assistance, as highlighted by the International Labor Organization Department of Statistics (ILOSTAT). Russia is the only non-high-income country among those with the highest doctors’ density worldwide. There were five infectious disease specialists per 100 thousand inhabitants in the country in 2019.
