    Croatian abstract

    RIZIČNI ČIMBENICI ZA NASTANAK KARDIOVASKULARNIH BOLESTI U RURALNIM PODRUČJIMA U HRVATSKOJ ----- Ruralna područja u kojima živi 47,6% hrvatske populacije ostala su izvan istraživačkog fokusa i prepoznavanja promjena karakterističnih za ruralno stanovništvo. U ruralnim zajednicama utvrđeno je lošije zdravstveno stanje u više dimenzija. Cilj je ovog istraživanja utvrditi specifične zdravstvene potrebe i pripadajuće čimbenike koji odražavaju utjecaj rata, posljedica rata i tranzicije na ruralno stanovništvo. Fokus istraživanja usmjeren je na ruralni stil života, pona- šanje i kardiovaskularne rizične čimbenike u tri sela Sisačko-moslavačke županije. Rezultati pokazuju da ispitanici razumiju da njihov životni stil utječe na njihovo zdravlje, ali ne prihvaćaju promjenu vlastitog ponašanja, što se može objasniti složenim socio-ekonomskim okolnostima i tradicijskim vrijednostima vezanim uz njihovo nasljeđe. Rezultati ukazuju na potrebu da se dalje specifično istražuje zdravstveno stanje, stavovi i ponašanje ruralne populacije u Hrvatskoj. Potrebno je razviti specifične javnozdravstvene intervencije i skrb za ruralno stanovništvo.

    English abstract

    Rural areas, where 47.6% of the Croatian population lives are not generally the focus of research; yet there are challenges which affect the rural population that often go unreported. These communities often exhibit disadvantages in many areas of health. The aim of this study is to examine the specific health needs and related determinants of rural populations influenced by transition that were affected by the consequences of war. The focus of the research is rural lifestyle, behaviour and cardiovascular risk factors in three villages of Sisacko-moslavacka County. Results show that participants generally understand that their own lifestyles influence their health, but they often neglect to change their behaviour to improve their health. This can be explained through complex socio-economic conditions and traditional values of their heritage. These results suggest a need for further research on health status, attitude, and behaviour of Croatia's rural population. Specific public health intervention and services for rural populations must be promoted.
