This manual is designed in accordance with the program on hygiene for students of pharmaceutical institutes and pharmaceutical faculties of medical institutes. Contains materials that correspond to the profile of their future work. Such materials are the issues of hygiene, pharmacy, occupational health herbal plants and chemical-pharmaceutical enterprises, the basics of epidemiology and organization of anti-epidemic measures, health education.
The above mentioned information is completely absent in the existing textbooks on hygiene for the students of medical, sanitary and other faculties of medical institutes.
