Objective. The epidemiological situation on chronic viral hepatitis C was assessed in Far Eastern Federal District.
Methods. Incidence rate data characterizing the epidemiological situation of chronic viral hepatitis C for 2006–2015 was used.
Results. It was established that the most unfavorable epidemiological situation of all territories of the Russian Federation is primarily noted in the eastern regions of the country (Ural, Siberia, Russian Far East) and Northwestern Federal District. Integral criterion of main epidemiological factors enables to conduct more deep comparative analysis of epidemiological situation. According to this approach it was established that unfavorable situation of chronic viral hepatitis C in the Russian Far East was registered in Chukotka Autonomous Region, and the most favorable was registered in Jewish Autonomous Region and Primorskiy Territory.
Conclusions. The proposed generalized incidence rate more objectively reflects the manifestations of the epidemic process, without distorting the standard value of the average value, and takes into account the main risks of the development of morbidity.
