This paper provides an overview of the existing knowledge and gaps in knowledge of reproductive and maternal health care in the Russian Federation. This review aimed to assess the current state of knowledge on reproductive care in Russia by means of an overview of existing literature on the subject, including grey literature, with a focus on maternal and perinatal mortality, abortion, and barriers to services, especially for vulnerable groups. In addition to the current state of knowledge, the review identifies needs for further research.
