Abstract

Health In Times of Transition: Trends in Population Health and Health Policies in CIS countries (“HITT-CIS”) is primarily funded by the European Commission (DG Research – FP7). HITT-CIS is a follow-up project that continues the research efforts started by the FP5 INCO-Copernicus Project LLH (Living Conditions, Lifestyles and Health). We try to understand better the circumstances in which people of the post-soviet countries live, how good or bad is the quality of health service they receive and how could they access the healthcare facilities. Furthermore, our aim is to access their healthy or unhealthy lifestyles, patterns of nutrition, quality and forms of food they usually buy and consume, as well as habits of alcohol and tobacco consumption. On top of that, we shall evaluate the efficiency of public policies at national, regional and local levels in relation to the health care and securing the healthy circumstance of people’s life.
