This research contributes to the current global discussion around health gradients and socioeconomic disparities. Even before the sanctions and the COVID-19 pandemic, Russian public health was characterised by high mortality and morbidity rates, the large gap between male and female life expectancy, as well as serious structural challenges. Using data from the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey and approach of concentration curves and indices, this study provides insights into the distribution of perceived health across different socioeconomic groups and examines health inequality against the background of health and social reforms. This study helps to shed light on the overall picture of socioeconomic health inequality in modern Russia and investigates the role of the potential individual-level economic and social factors in shaping health disparities.
