Age - and gender -related characteristics of child morbidity

Alexey Shulaev; Marat Sadykov; Dariya Mirolyubova;

The article is devoted to the problem of child morbidity in a megalopolis. Using the morbidity indicator makes it possible to analyze morbidity levels in different age and gender groups. This, in turn, allows to obtain more objective data compared to assessing the morbidity according to official statistics. The publication presents the results of the morbidity study classifying diseases in the most important periods of child’s development: infancy, early and preschool age, school age and adolescence, considering the gender of the child. Taking into account that certain types of diseases predominate in different age periods of the child’s development, it is important to assess the impact of biological, ecological, epidemiological, social, medical and organizational risk factors of the morbidity.
