The different parts of the Russian Federation have different demographic situations, climatic and natural conditions and traditions, but also many similar features. The majority of northern regions have a low population density, scarce urban populations and large territories with less developed infrastructure. It is impossible to ensure a high level of perinatal care with modern technology in regional hospitals with 100-200 deliveries per year. It is connected to quality of equipment and qualifications of the staff. Thus, there is a necessity of development of a special system of perinatal care based on special conditions and available resources (1). This paper will present the organization of the perinatal care in the sparsely populated Komi Republic.(Int J Circumpolar Health 2005; 64(2):187-190)
