Results: the constructed scenarios show that an increase in the degree of support for the processes of reproduction of health capital by regional authorities leads to a significant improvement in the parameters that reflect the development of the absolute majority of the key elements of the model of reproduction of health capital at the regional level. At the same time, the greatest progress is being made in the development of such elements as health capital, the health care system, the cost of health care services, regional development and investment. It is noted that the key conditions for the formation of an effective mechanism for managing the health capital of the population of the region is to ensure the systemic nature of the impact on the process of reproduction of this capital at the territorial level, as well as the adaptability of this process to constantly changing conditions.

Monitoring of factors influencing the cost of medicines

Keywords: statistical analysis, medicines, pharmaceutical market, models, cost estimation, medicines, price, income.


Purpose: to monitor and benchmark factors that affect the cost of medicines. Discussion: The modern pharmaceutical market provides a wide range of medicines with different characteristics and a wide cost range. The article examines the factors that affect the cost of drugs with the construction of mathematical models of their cost. With the help of correlation analysis, the basic factors that have a significant impact on the price of medicines have been identified. Using regression analysis, models were built that estimate the cost of different categories of medicines. Results: the analysis made it possible to show the dependence of the cost of medicines on the conditions of storage and transportation, on packaging and the country of origin. To a lesser extent, the price depends on the category of ATS and the list of Vital and Essential Drugs. In other words, all medicines belonging to the same group do not have pharmacological differences, and differences in their price are due only to marketing factors.

Keywords: freight traffic, cargo flow, transport strategy, rail transport, seaport, dry port, cargo village, transport system, terminal and logistics center.


Purpose: to consider the operational and transport and logistics aspects of the international trade of the Russian Federation under sanctions pressure. Discussion: in the difficult conditions of economic sanctions, Russia needs to reorient the flow of goods and find new partners – suppliers and consumers in friendly countries, and expand the existing trade with them.

Keywords: globalization, integration, unification, sanctions, foreign trade turnover, parallel imports, logistics costs, logistics cycle.


Purpose: to study the processes of transformation of the logistics chain management system in Russia under the conditions of sanctions by foreign “unfriendly” countries and the consequences of globalization of national economies. Discussion: the imposition of sanctions by “unfriendly” countries leads to the destruction of some logistics chains, but also to the creation and formation of new ones, both in the country’s foreign economic activity and within Russia, which determines various ways and means of solving them, one of which is parallel import. The materials presented by the authors of the gross domestic product and the population of the countries of the world, their specific weight allows us to form an idea of the production process of national economies. This determines the consideration and disclosure of certain international unions and their goals, to identify the negative and positive sides of the globalization of the economy.

The advantages of each type of transport in the considered direction of cargo transportation are highlighted, the main of which are: reliability; universality; large load capacity; possibility of transportation of non-standard cargoes, bulky, dangerous. Results: in today’s difficult conditions caused by sanctions and restrictions, it is necessary to adapt to new realities: the closure of the airspace of many countries, the sea blockade require a revision of the established supply chains. Changing suppliers in the market leads to a change in supply routes. Freight traffic from China to Russia has not changed much, most of the goods are sent by rail, in second place is sea transportation. It is necessary to develop existing chains and build new ones, increasing the role of rail transport.

Implementation of sustainable development goal 7 (SDG 7) in African countries: assessing the progress achieved to date

Keywords: sustainable development, Africa, electric energy, implementation evaluation, electrification, program implementation, evaluation criteria, energy resources.


Purpose: to assess the progress achieved to date in implementing the Sustainable development goals in African countries with special reference to Goal 7 of the SDGs. Discussion: criteria for assessing the level of accomplishment need further consideration. Africa is the least developed continent in terms of its population’s access to electricity. A significant difference is noted in the rates of access to electricity between the North African countries and South Africa on the one hand and the Sub-Saharan states, on the other. A big gap is also present in the access to electricity between urban and rural population. A review of the energy resources available in the African states has shown that the most promising resource is solar energy. Results: Utilisation of solar energy does not require long-distance transmission lines and may provide the population with access to electricity in a relatively short period of time. The exploitation of other energy resources particularly hydropower takes a considerably longer period of time and requires bigger financial resources. Apart from electric energy it is necessary to accelerate efforts to provide the population with clean cooking fuels. Reorientating part of official development assistance could help quicken the process of Africa’s electrification.
