Russia’s Demographics: Increasing The Birth Rate In Russia: Solutions And Prospects
3 June 2021

Presidential address to the Federal Assembly called the task of preserving the people of Russia the highest national priority. The programme for demographic development of Russia must take into account the complete range of impact factors: strategies for strengthening social guarantees, prevention of reproductive disorder risks, newborn healthcare, creation of a health protecting environment, as well as advocacy of a healthy life style and responsible parenting. The state policy for improving the demographic situation in the country must be based on strategies for increased birth-rate and protection of maternity and childhood by adopting measures of social and direct financial support for young mothers and families with children. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic that the state demographic policy had to face, its strategic objective remains the same: once again to achieve a stable rate of growth in the population size and an average life expectancy of 78 years in Russia by the year 2030. What forecasts for demographic growth in Russia as well as global trends need to form the basis of the policy for overcoming the consequences of the pandemic crisis and ensuring stability of demographic processes? What support measures for families, women, men, and children can stimulate demographic growth in Russia? What measures can help to solve the problem of high supermortality, especially among work-age males? What measures of state policy are required to create a preventive system for preserving a family’s reproductive health? What trends in migration policy and changes in the labour market can help reduce the volume of work migration abroad and attract external work resources? How can the society be motivated to lead a healthy life and have a responsible attitude toward health and parenting?
