Background. Social and economic changes of the public living in Primorsky territory (Building of the summit meeting APEC objects) in 2007–2011 caused the population health changes because of ecology-caused pathology.
Methods. Social and hygiene analysis of children, teens and adults health condition was conducted in Primorsky territory with different ecological and social characteristics: urban (Vladivostok), countryside area with seaboard climate (Hasan district), and countruside with continental climate (Horol and Kirovsk districts).
Results. Respiratory organs morbidity among adults demonstrated the constant increase of indexes. In the conditions of the continental climate in countryside respiratory organs morbidity in adults was significantly lower. The same morbidity in teenagers in 2009– 2011 grew noticeably. Respiratory organs morbidity in children in Vladivostok and in continental districts was higher than in seaboard territories. Low indexes of genitourinary system were noted in children from environmentally pristine districts. High indexes of derma morbidity were registered in teenagers of ecologically negative continental territory – Horol district, and in children of countryside and urban areas.
Conclusions. In climate negative conditions of Primorsky territory in all groups along with significant increase of ecology-caused morbidity it was educed the tendency to the improvement of public health condition.
