The purpose of the article is linked to its contemporary nature - resolving the problem of demographic situation in the country as a whole and in its individual regions. The article characterizes the current health care system of the republic, showing existing problems, whose solutions are usually of subjective nature. Substantiations are given to general problems and causes of inefficiency of the health care system. Factors that determine the efficiency of the system are classified, thus allowing for a detailed analysis of the current state of the health care system and its subsequent evaluation. It has been established, that functioning of the system becomes more complicated in mountainous regions, leading to issues in providing population with quality medical services. Substantiations are provided for the necessity to place medical institutions in the closest vicinity of mountainous population. The key problems in the health care system of the Republic of Dagestan has been revealed. Among them there is shortage of qualified doctors and nurses. This problem did not find its fundamental solution and is still unresolved. Low salaries of doctors and nursing staff; weakness of material and technical resources of medical establishments, especially in the countryside. Possible options for improving the quality of medical services have been defined. First, building of stationary medical facilities in the mountainous areas, second, development of the system of aftercare in the mountainous part of the republic by means of organizing building and provision of materials, resources and equipment to establish local therapeutic resorts. It has been proven, that there is a relation between unavailability of quality medical services to rural population in mountainous areas, lack of quality doctors in rural medical facilities and low pay for their work in the republic. Significance of this research is in that it determines the problems of health care system of the republic and defines tentative solutions.
