Abstract
Theee has been analyzed information of Federal statistics agency for the period from 2007 to 2011 about the distribution of children in health groups, child morbidity and disability in view of all Russian regions. Indices are juxtaposed together in the course of the use of an author's technique "percentile-profile" that gives an evident imagination of the place of the each region according to the each index in the general assembly of Russian regions, about the quality of information on both children's health, and dispensary work and availability of the medico-social care for children (in determination of disability). In the course of the cluster analysis there were selected leading tendencies in the sphere of children's health on Russian territory.

Abstract
The publication in this issue of an article describing the fatal strangulation of two children on clothing drawstrings (see pages 1417 to 1419) coincides with National Child Day. This juxtaposition prompts the author to examine Canadian child health policy and practices in relation to injury prevention and product safety. The absence of a central body in Canada responsible for injury prevention may reflect the absence of advocacy groups concerned exclusively with the prevention of childhood injuries and stands in sharp contrast to the attention given to various "high-profile" but comparatively rare childhood diseases. In Canada, taking a firm regulatory or legislative approach to product safety appears to be the exception rather than the rule. Instead, we rely on product safety bulletins, the effectiveness of which has never been evaluated. The adoption of tougher measures would be facilitated by the establishment of a national centre for injury prevention and control. Such centres in the United States and Sweden have been successful and demonstrate that the creation of a Canadian body responsible for addressing the epidemic of accidental injury is long overdue.

Abstract
In 1991, money was granted by Nordisk Ministerråd to prepare a Nordic project concerning children at risk. Since then, preparations have gone forward to organize a project focussing on 10-year olds' experiences of risk and protective factors in their daily lives. The project combines data from fairly large cohorts or samples with in-depth studies concerning specific analyses of risk and protective factors, life events, children's experiences with various helping services and child welfare, children's school environment etc. A project group with participants from all the Nordic countries has been established, and three meetings have been arranged during 1992. The Nordic project as such aims to started fully 1993.

Abstract
The frequency of health groups 1 and 2 was studied in children living in the areas of the Orenburg Region, by taking into account the level and nature of their anthropogenic pollution. The pollution indicators of environmental objects (ambient air, drinking water, soil) were analyzed. A cross-sectional population-based study was conducted in 7000 children aged 1 month to 18 years, who lived in the urban and rural areas. In the urban areas, health group 1 and 2 children were 2.2- and 1.6-foldfewer than that in the rural ones, respectively. Ambient air pollution was found to have a priority impact on the children's health.

Abstract
A socio-pediatric study of children's health and well-being has been carried out, based on questionnaires from 2000 children with long-term illnesses and disabilities and from a representative sample of 10,000 children from the five Nordic countries. The overall results confirm that Nordic children enjoy a high standard of living, and that they are healthy, both physically, mentally and socially. They frequently use the health services but mainly for minor complaints and their hospital stays are short. Disabled children and their families have the same material standard of living and a similar social network as the others. Their leisure time activities, however, are reduced and the children's peer acceptance and self-esteem are lower and they have more psychosomatic symptoms. It is mainly the mothers who have to interrupt their career to take care of the disabled children. Most families, both disabled and others, are quite satisfied with the children's medical care, especially where continuity and specialist services are provided.

Abstract
The development of methods for evaluating the body's condition upon exposure to different environmental factors is currently a topical problem of hygienic science. The quantitative characteristics of the body's adaptive and reserve capacities are gaining in more and more importance. In this connection, a total of 2560 children aged 8-10 years were examined. An integral assessment enables identification of 4 types of adaptive and functional capacities in children.
