Globalization and Russia

Globalization has dramatically affected health in Russia. Much of the concern is on
international flow of capital on emerging infectious diseases to the opportunities provided by
the new, unexpected influx of spending on defense against bioterrorism. There is a variety of
emergent opportunities for enhancing infectious disease control such as global surveillance
capabilities and the dynamic nature of the new Russian public health training programs
(Cockerham, & Cockerham, 2010). According to Cockerham, & Cockerham (2010),
globalization is showing itself in Russia by the increased morbidity of which food and
commodities are diffused to all parts of Russia to control infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS.
In fact, the rapid spread of human immune-deficiency virus (HIV) in Russia is an example of
the profound globalizing forces on the emergence, distribution and the spread of infectious
There has been a phenomenal change in quality of life in Russia during the post-
transition period. This change in quality is improvement in life expectancy especially in
Romania. This happened by Romania starting to follow the path of improving adult mortality
as seen in the 1990 (Cockerham, & Cockerham, 2010). This improvement in adult mortality
was consequently followed by improvement in child mortality mostly to countries in the
Eastern parts of Russia. In addition, there was a change in mortality in post-transition Russia.
It is observed that there was decline in overall life expectancy in Romania during the post-
transition period mainly because of the increased mortality in men, as female life expectancy
at birth remained stable at about 70 years old (Cockerham, & Cockerham, 2010). This was
mainly attributed to increase in disorders of the digestive systems and circulatory systems
such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). In Romania, there was a decrease in
mortality from other causes, but HIV/AIDS played a key role in increasing mortality of
women, children, and mean.
