The physical condition, the factors of the population’s existence, model the well-being of the basic cell of society, where its members perform certain roles.

OBJECTIVE: To study the process of forming family health through the implementation of priority functions of the population in a developing society.

METHODS: We studied the data of statistical accounting forms on the physiometric indicators of persons aged 5–70 years, questionnaires of the contingent from 18 to 70 years of the city of Novosibirsk. Theoretical reflection, qualitative content analysis, and interdisciplinary methods (assessment of physical condition, Student’s criterion, Pearson’s χ2, comparative analysis of the point of view of the 18–70-year-old population about the priority of activity) are used to create an algorithm of actions.

RESULTS: The main roles were developed taking into account the anatomical and value characteristics of respondents aged 5–70 years. The main, important functions, the increased degree of their execution are established. The younger (from 18 to 29 years) the adult population, the need for reproductive and sexual opportunities is higher (36.4–42.6%). In persons aged 30–44 and 45–59, respectively, only educational and educational activities (46.8-56.4%) and household activities (38.0–38.9%) were highly significant. Psychoemotional (37.0%) and economic (35.7%) functions were performed by the population aged 60–70. Models were created through an increased degree of performance of the roles of respondents from 18 to 70 years old. For a contingent of 18–44 years old, a well-maintained life is necessary. The older (45–59 years) and older (60–70 years) generations are not dependent on the comfort of housing. At the same time, respondents from 18 to 70 years of age require the absence of harmful working conditions. At the same time, a balanced, irrational diet was observed in individuals aged 18–29 and 30–59, respectively. Whereas, for the contingent over 60 years old, the presence/ absence of rationality in the composition of dishes is not important.

CONCLUSIONS: The population, through its age-related priority functions, interacts with social institutions (health care system, economy-production, education), forms the health of the family, strengthens the national security of the country in the situation of modernization of medical structures.
