Aims: To estimate the population-level link between alcohol consumption and the gender gap in mortality from hypertension in Russia.

Methods: In a comparative perspective, the trends in alcohol consumption per capita and the gender gap in the death rates from hypertension between 1980 and 2015 using the autoregressive-integrated moving average (ARIMA) method were analyzed.

Results: The level of alcohol consumption is positively correlated with the gender gap in hypertension death rate: an increase in alcohol drinking by 1 liter leads to an increase in the gender gap by 15.9%. Evaluation of the alcohol-attributable fraction indicated that alcohol is responsible for 88.5% of the difference in mortality from hypertension among men and women.

Conclusion: These results suggest that alcohol is an important factor in the gender gap in the mortality from hypertension in Russia
