The following research was performed in 1999 in order to determine public health problems and the priority about public education of the municipalities. Questionnaire forms were sent to a total of 3215 municipalities. The participitation ratio were 29% (931 municipalities). Municipalities declined their priorities about public health problems in the following order: general environmental problems (20.3%), problems related with health systems (13.1%) and communicable diseases (8.6%). Subjects which had been declined as beeing the most priority that must be included in public education were as follows; general environmental problems (16.0%), personal hygiene and cleaning (14.1%), and family planning (9.7%). There was consistency between the priorities about public health problems and subjects with high priority about public education reported by the municipalities. The priorities about these two subjects were suitable to National Health 21 Policy.
