The article focuses on the problems of building the sustainable health care systems at the national and international levels. The relevance of the chosen topic is determined by the condition of the national health care systems in connection with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for international cooperation in overcoming the consequences of new infectious disease on a global scale. To this end, the study took the form of a comprehensive review of the theory and practice of national health care systems in Switzerland, Germany, France, Poland and the Russian Federation. To achieve this goal, the main institutions of the existing health systems were considered. The extensive research proves that national health policies have a similar nature and similar variability in public health reform: increasing state funding, improving health insurance methods and introduction of the latest information technology. It is noted that national interests and strategic national priorities in the field of health care are pursued with a full-fledged effective cooperation of the above-mentioned countries with the European Commission for Health and Sustainable Development and the WHO Regional Committee. In response to the need to improve the legal mechanism for the sustainable health care system, the authors addressed those issues from a cross-sectoral perspective by correlating separate branches of law (medical, informational, financial and international) to provide comprehensive legal support for the modernization of the national health care system.
