Abstract

The aim of this paper was to analyse the regional variations and trends in mortality from cardiovascular diseases in the population aged 0-64 years in Dalmatia and Slavonia, over the period 1998 to 2009. Mortality data were derived from Central Bureau of Statistics. The results show that age-standardized mortality rates from total cardiovascular diseases, ischaemic heart diseases and cerebrovascular diseases were lower in Dalmatia than rates for Slavonia, for both genders. All mortality rates, except rates for ischaemic heart diseases mortality for men in both regions, showed the trend of decline. Dalmatia has a more protective factors in pattern of Mediterranean diet. The improvement of cardiovascular health and reduction of premature mortality from cardiovascular diseases requires a system and comprehensive intervention approach at all levels of health care and multisectorial coordination.

REGIONALNE RAZLIKE I TRENDOVI U SMRTNOSTI OD KARDIOVASKULARNIH BOLESTI U POPULACIJI 0–64 GODINE U DALMACIJI I SLAVONIJI, 1998–2009 ----- Cilj ovog rada bio je analizirati regionalne razlike i trendove smrtnosti od kardiovaskularnih bolesti u populaciji 0–64 godine u Dalmaciji i Slavoniji u razdoblju od 1998. do 2009. godine. Podaci o umrlima dobiveni su iz Državnog zavoda za statistiku. Rezultati pokazuju da su dobno standardizirane stope smrtnosti od kardiovaskularnih bolesti ukupno, ishemijskih bolesti srca i cerebrovaskularnih bolesti bile niže u Dalmaciji za oba spola. Sve analizirane stope, osim stopa smrtnosti od ishemijskih bolesti srca za muškarce u obje regije, pokazale su trend smanjenja. Dalmacija ima više zaštitnih kardiovaskularnih čimbenika u modelu mediteranskog načina prehrane. Za unapređenje kardiovaskularnog zdravlja i smanjenja prijevremene smrtnosti od kardiovaskularnih bolesti potreban je sustavan sveobuhvatan intervencijski pristup na svim razinama zdravstvene zaštite i multisektorske suradnje.
