This chapter traces the development of epidemiology in Poland. It demonstrates the improvement in health in Poland (and Eastern Europe) due to the control of communicable disease and shows that in the past forty years there have been major advances in the study of chronic respiratory diseases, cancer, and diabetes which have led to better methods of control. It highlights the emergence of studies in children and environmental hazards to illustrate how epidemiological research has attempted to develop methods for the prevention and control of chronic disease.

Keywords:   epidemiology, epidemiological research, disease control, public health, Poland, environmental hazards
