Abstract: 

One of the main health effects of the Chernobyl accident are endocrine system diseases. The specific gravity of morbidity of endocrine system among the total population is 0.89% in Chernihiv region and 1.5% in Zhytomyr region that far exceeds the pre-accident values. This study makes comparative analysis of the dynamics of endocrine system diseases in the period from 1990 to 2014 in the areas officially regarded as contaminated by the Chernobyl accident and in the “clean” areas. A clear dependence between radiation contamination and increase in endocrine system morbidity was not ascertained. This shows the complex impact of various factors on endocrine health. In Ukraine, the prevalence of endocrine system diseases in 2014 was 8342.3 cases per 100 thousand people. In Chernihiv region, this index is higher than the average Ukrainian, but in Zhytomyr region it is slightly smaller. In terms of administrative raions high indexes of extension of endocrine diseases are typical both for “radioactive contaminated” and “clear” areas. Monitoring of endocrine health of population in radioactive contaminated areas should be done in the future to make an objective assessment of the health status and to identify the ways of its improvement.

Key words:
