ABSTRACT
The aim is to define workable framework for implementation of the WHO Green Page Environmental Health Diagnostics in primary care. The study was carried out with the employment standard form questionnaire among parents of children. 159 parents took part in the study. 34 (24.3%) of parents expressed their concern about the child’s environment. 23.7% of the examined demonstrated awareness of existing environmental risks. The Green Page allows for an approximation to environmental diagnostics to characterize positive or negative factors and detection of the most vulnerable individuals or groups.
