Most of the high morbidity rates were in Bishkek with an indicator of morbidity 20.80 per 1 million population and Jalal-Abad region with an indicator of 20.08, the lowest values ​​were obtained in Naryn and Batken regions – 15.26 and 11.50, respectively. The incidence of ALL in people of Russian nationality have the highest values, despite a smaller percentage in the quantitative composition (19.77 per 1 million population).
