Although political turmoil in Russia continues to impede national health system reform, linkages between Russian scientists and members of the international medical community have been established. Russian physicians actively seek previously unavailable information and contacts with the West, where government and private efforts have been extended to facilitate such collaborations and interactions. In this article, we attempt to broaden understanding of medical care in Russia and shed light on current transitional efforts to help foster interest and promote scientific interaction. Such urgently needed collaboration can assist willing Russian physicians and health system reformers to gain the knowledge needed to counter the massive public health and medical problems that confront Russia today.
