The paper analyzes breast cancer morbidity in the female population of Chernihiv region. The research of current trends in morbidity and mortality of the female population due to breast cancer was conducted in several stages. The first stage provided for the collection of statistical information, the second stage involved the analysis of quantitative indicators. The analysis of the current epidemiological situation was conducted using a personalized database of the National Cancer Registry of Ukraine and indicators of health status, activities and resources for municipal health care institutions in Chernihiv region using the gross rates of morbidity and mortality. The final stage of the study was to determine the level of public health in view of breast cancer and investigation of its territorial differences within Chernihiv region. It was found out that the period of 2000-2015 was characterized by a clear trend of increasing morbidity and stabilizing mortality due to breast cancer both within the region and the country. However, the rate of breast cancer morbidity in female population in Chernihiv region is lower than in Ukraine. Stabilization of breast cancer mortality is associated with early cancer diagnostics, as well as introduction of new technologies for diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
