Summary/Abstract: The article presents the results of a retrospective analysis of changes in population health (end of XIX – beginning of XXI centuries.), which was made for a more detailed and in-depth assessment of modern medical-geographical situation in the Moscow region (the beginning of the XXI century). Using comparative geographical and cartographic research methods analyzed indicators characterizing demographic characteristics, morbidity, pollution, socio-economic characteristics and the health care system. The changes in the population, transformed from a rural to urban, and its age structure. Changed components that regulate the natural movement of population, natural population growth in the region was replaced by natural wastage. In contrast to the current situation in the past, there was a very clear territorial confinement of the high prevalence rates for all pathologies to counties with developed industry and deterministic sources of environmental pollution. Currently, in the Moscow region such relationships are ambiguous, due to the total multifactorial influence on public health.
