Background: There is considerable variability in the magnitude of gender gap in all-cause mortality across Europe. Russia has one of the highest gender differences in all-cause mortality among European countries.

Objective: This study examines the aggregate level effect of binge drinking on the gender gap in all-cause mortality in Russian.

Method: Trends in male fatal alcohol poisonings rate (as a proxy for binge drinking) and gender gap in all-cause mortality from 1956 to 2015 were analyzed employing a distributed lags analysis in order to assess bivariate relationship between the two time series.

Results: The results indicated that there is a statistically significant relationship between the variables at lag zero (r = 0.88; SE=0.13).

Conclusions: This study highlights the key role of binge drinking in extremely high gender gap in all-cause mortality and its dramatic fluctuations in Russia during the last few decades.
