The article analyzes the place of such values as health in the general system of values of Russians. Data show that in whatever time would be conducted a survey, in whatever form would be asked questions if there is, among other alternatives the category "health", it always turns out to be in first place among all terms proposed for ranking. At the same time Russians assess the state of their health quite low. Russia holds the sad championship in inaccessibility of health services among all countries participating in the survey, no matter what the reasons underlie this inaccessibility. First of all a lack of money to pay for medical services and the inability to get the right treatment, where the respondent lives or nearby, should be mentioned. Health of Russians to a greater extent, than in other countries, is determined by the age of the respondents (in Switzerland, for example, assessments of health remain at the level between "good" and "very good" almost till 70 years), as well as by income.
