Расходы населения России на лекарственные средства: что изменилось во время кризиса?

ЭКО. 2016. № 9. С. 113-122.

The paper uses data from two national household surveys conducted in 2011 and 2014 by Levado Center and compares changes in levels of out-of-pocket drug expenditures in different social groups. The study demonstrates that reinforcement of price regulation policy was not accompanied by improvement in drug availability. After economic crisis individuals with low incomes were less likely to buy pharmaceuticals; disabled decreased their average monthly spending on medicine. For majority of respondents the share of drug expenditures as percent of their per capita income has increased.
