Objective. We analyzed the international experience, the recommendations of the World Health Organization and identified the basic requirements at the development and implementation of the policy within the framework of the national programs on the environmental protection and children’s and adolescents’ health system.
A level of public health and health services’ state depend on the real socio-economic processes in the state. First of all, a sector strategy is based on the demographic situation, the main indicators of the health of the population taking into account the environmental risk factors. According to the data of the WHO, the impact of the contaminated environment on a human health is still a leading reason of death and sufferings throughout Europe, especially for children. Children as the most vulnerable part of society are extremely sensitive to the environmental threats.
Allowing for the European vector of development, the future health services’ system in Ukraine must be agreed with the European principles, it presupposes a replacement of the given model of health services by the modern world schemes, practices, and experiences, taking into account that children and youth are the priorities of state policy.
