The level of primary incidence of this contingent is currently 1373.8%o and the growth of this indicator over 10 years was 16.0%. When analyzing the incidence of the studied contingent, classes of diseases require the most attention: eye and its adnexa diseases, respiratory diseases, digestive diseases, diseases of ear and mastoid process and nervous system, as well as the genitourinary system diseases.
