Purpose: hygienic assessment of the state of atmospheric air in the Republic of Uzbekistan. Material and methods: The Center of the Hydrometeorological Service of the Republic of Uzbekistan monitors air pollution in the cities of the Republic. The monitoring program covers 5 major pollutants: dust (suspended solids), carbon monoxide (carbon monoxide), nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide. Information obtained from 63stationary observation posts makes it possible to judge the average level of air pollution in the republic as a whole and to calculate the air pollution index, which gives an integral characteristic of the level of air pollution for the city over the year. Results: data analysis shows that for the period studied, a higher degree of air pollution index was observed only in Angren: in 2014 - 5.12, in 2016 - 5.32, in 2017 -5.30. Conclusions: despite the reduction in gross emissions of pollutants, it is not accompanied by stabilization and, moreover, improvement in the quality of atmospheric air.
