[Article in Polish]


An integration of scientific associations involved in public health and genetics to apply genetics achievements might create new perspectives of public health and health promotion in Poland and allow to apply genomic applications that are currently in transition from research to public health practice. Activities might enable to undertake preventive actions as population screening programs based on genome-based knowledge and technologies as targeted preventive interventions. The achievements in the field of public health genetics or genomics have been taking place in several countries and have begun to have an impact on population health status.
