The paper presents the results of the study of basic indicators of urological service for the adult population of Ukraine and the results of activities of the service during 2017 compared with the past. It is proved that the developed network, which has a high personnel potential, is stored in the country and works efficiently enough. However, there is a deterioration of health of population due to the accumulation of patients with the most common diseases (“kidney infection” chronic pyelonephritis, cystitis, urolithiasis, benign prostatic hyperplasia), increases cancer incidence (RC, prostate cancer) and prevalence of RC, RSM. Also increases the mortality level at all cancer diseases, and the reduction of indices in urolithiasis and benign prostatic hyperplasia is accompanied by high growth rates among men in the first and among the rural population with urolithiasis, benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer, malignancies of other organs and systems. Traceability of the regional variability of indicators related to the organization and the quality of provision of specialized assistance is of high socio-economic importance.
