Abstract
Data were obtained on the somatic health of schoolchildren in Kyzylorda (100 people) and rural schools - Syrdariya district (71 people) and Zhalagash district (114 people) located in the central part of the Aral Sea region. The weight, height, lung capacity, blood pressure, and heart rate were determined according to the health scale method. It is shown that only a third of high school students (18% of urban school students and 29% of rural schoolchildren) in the Aral Sea region have a high and above average level of health. More than 46% of urban schoolchildren and 36% of rural students showed an average level of health, the indicators of the remaining 35-36% of high school students corresponded to a low level of health. This state of health shows a high likelihood of developing chronic health disorders associated with functional insufficiency of the cardiovascular system (low levels of Robinson and Rufe indexes), lack of lung capacity (Quality of Life Index), underdevelopment of the muscular system and an increasing tendency to increase body fat components.
