Over the 16 years of reform, half of the hospitals, one third of hospital beds and every tenth polyclinic have been eliminated. By the number of hospitals, Russia lags behind the RSFSR of 1932 (5 thousand 962 hospitals).

On average, the state spends a little more than 1.1 thousand rubles a year on drugs for one Russian.
