Implementation of the Concept of demographic development in Moscow was completed in 2015. The capital is currently facing the objective to develop a new Concept and Implementation plan until 2025, coordinated with the appropriate Federal documents.

The purpose of the study was to assess current mortality trends in the capital taking into account effect of the demographic policies and provide rational for proposals to the draft Concept of demographic policy in Moscow for 2016-2025.

Materials and methods: the analysis covers the entire age scale (0-14, 15-29, 30-44, 45-59, 60-74,75 and over) by major causes of death (diseases of the circulatory system, neoplasms, injury and poisoning, diseases of the respiratory system, diseases of the digestive system, infections, and symptoms, signs and ill-defined conditions) in comparison with the countries of Central and Eastern Europe (ônew Europeö) and Western Europe (ôold Europeö).

Moscow reached levels of life expectancy, characteristic of countries of the Central and Eastern Europe (the average for the group), with comparable social and economic potential. Convergence of life expectancy in the capital and the ônew EUö is due to population over 45 years: in younger working-age groups Moscow is behind the ônew EUö. This loss was determined by all leading causes of death (by neoplasms least of all).

Based on the capitalĺs results in achieving decrease in mortality and problems identified that determine reserves for further loss reduction the purpose of the Demographic policy aimed at reducing mortality rates in Moscow is to reduce demographic, social and economic and human costs of social development.

Criteria for problem statement are determined by the following: achievability of current levels of life expectancy in the Western Europe (79.1 years for males and 84.2 years for females) by 2025; focus on reducing premature and avoidable deaths at ages 15-44 years; diversification of policies with due regard to social differentiation of the population and health-related problems.

The obtained results can be used to develop the Concept of demographic policy in Moscow until 2025.

Keywords: mortality; avoidable deaths; premature mortality; demographic policy; population health; life expectancy.
