Abstract: Human health is considered to be one of the most significant values in the system of people’s values. However, the modern life conditions (social and economic problems, bad ecology, educational factors, etc.) lead to deterioration of people’s health. The situation in is getting more complicated as all these conditions influence people greatly, and it’s very difficult to change something drastically. Children are even in worse position, because they are under the influence of these conditions from the first days of their life; and as they are only growing up and their organisms continue to get formed, they need special nursing. However, all people realize that there is an urgent need to improve the situation and take special notice of children’s health. That is why there have been developed a plan of measures for reduction in children’s incidence taken by different state institutions. For example, use of educational technologies that aim at maintaining health in learners, appearance of health promoting schools have been the measure in the system of education. In medical sphere medical state institutions have taken special measures for reduction in children’s incidence and mortality. The results of modern surveys show that these measures can really improve children’s health under some conditions: they are taken as early as possible; medical staff knows their theoretical and practical basis; families and other state and private organizations are involved in this process and facilitate it.
