Summary. Self-preservation behavior of successful young people, fellows of Oxford Russia Fund, was analyzed. The hypothesis of AS Skorobogatov (2010) was tested, according to which, care about health is depended from the economic value of man. That is the next: in a group of persons of the same age with the same economic value should be similar behavior with regard to health.

The study seeks to identify the social determinants of attitudes towards the preservation of health of the best students of the best classic universities in the country. Relation to health was determined based on a specially designed questionnaire.

Four groups of students with different perceptions of health status identified among homogeneous population by social status, type and level of education, focus on career and success, active life position (2002 people). We compared the respondents' views on the health between the groups. Relation to disease prevention were compared not only in the context of the selected four groups, but also in depending on the financial condition of the parental family, the type of work and level of parental education.

It was found that among the analyzed groups of young people self-preservation behavior differs significantly. The sense of health state in students change proportionally with their optimistic disposition, physical activity, sociability and involvement in social activities, resistance to the problems of life. Where the ratio of students to health maintenance and preventive measures does not vary linearly.

It is shown that the motivation of students to the preservation of health is determined by parental income families, the status and self-employed father, educational level of mother, presence of supporting the organization of health care. On that basis, it is concluded that the expected output from human capital is not the leading factor in shaping the behavior of the individual in terms of maintaining health. It was proposed to determine the human capital not only by the amount of money spent on education and training, but also through character traits of individuals as regards the prospects for employment benefits.

The urgency distribution among population data on the economic viability of preventive measures was determined. Based on the results it is concluded that as the health category is an abstract value for students and it is not associated with the concept of success in university, so there is no motivation to actively preserve health even among the intellectual elite of the future society.

Keywords. Self-preservation behavior, the correlation of the state's spending on health and human capital, health behavior, the motivation to preserve the health, commitment to prevent, the formation of the value of health, education responsibility for personal health, character traits of individuals as regards the prospects for employment benefits.
