Abstract

War in Bosnia and Herzegovina lasted from 1991 to 1995 and resulted in profound consequences marked by the large number of victims, increase in the diseases and disorders prevalence, that were not common before it occurred. The effects it had on health status of the entire population was reflected through many negative demographic trends, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and the spread of a number of unhealthy behavioral patterns and a lot of migrations. All this presents a problem for institutions of health system which are attempting to control these negative influences especially during the transition period, marked by the direct adverse consequences of the 1991–1995 war. The present paper presents a summation of various sources which are attempting to provide a synthetic overview and provide basic information in relation to the health status of the population, and also to provide a baseline evaluation for deployment of public health interventions.

Abstract in Croatian

ZDRAVSTVENO STANJE POPULACIJE FEDERACIJE BOSNE I HERCEGVINE TIJEKOM 15 GODINA TRANZICIJSKOG RAZDOBLJA ----- Rat u Bosni i Hercegovini trajao je od 1991. do 1995. godine, a rezultirao je dubokim posljedicama obilježenim velikim brojem žrtava, povećanjem prevalencije bolesti koje nisu bile česte prije. Ovi učinci su se odrazili na cijelu populaciju, kroz mnoge negativne demografske trendove, povećanu prevalenciju kroničnih bolesti i pojavu mnogih nezdravih oblika ponašanja i mnogo migracija. Sve ovo predstavlja problem za ustanove koje pokušavaju održavati kontrolu nad bolestima, posebice tijekom tranzicijskog razdoblja nakon rata. Ovaj rad prikazuje sumarni pregled raznih izvora i pruža uvid u zdravstveno stanje populacije i početnu točku za vrednovanje javnozdravstvenih intervencija.
