Health care of children and young people is part of a system of care of the so called “developmental age population.” In this system, prevention plays a key role. The aim of the study was, basing on the obtained results, to develop guidelines for the regional pro-family policy in care of a rural child. The study included children and young people of school age, from 14 to 19 years of age. Overall the analysis included 6,971 children and adolescents and 6,971 parents. Organization of health care of children and school adolescents depended on the solutions approved by individual founding bodies of Health Care Units and Regional Patients’ Funds. The withdrawal of nurses from school was observed. The tasks of prevention character performed previously by nurses employed at schools began to be implemented within the framework of primary health care in the child’s place of residence. For proper implementation of the tasks of school nurses and the proper development of school hygiene, it is important to establish a uniform and maximum number of pupils per one nurse, taking into account all circumstances, and to develop standards of care for the student, taking into account the age of the student, school type, and the region.
