In 1983-84, the Faculty of Health Sciences at the American University of Beirut, initiated a population- based survey on the health of a city, Beirut, in a country undergoing a protracted civil war. The present volume presents the findings of a ten- year follow- up to the original survey, carried out after the end of the war.It provides a rich array of statistics and information, as well as comparative data on the population at two different points in time. Changes in demographic and health status, use of health services, and prevalence of chronic and acute diseases, are all assessed.
