Îmbătrânire sănătoasăîn România: himeră sau obiectiv realist pentru medicina de familie ?

Romanian perspective on health and public health l.jpg
Romanian perspective on health and public health

We understand, together with Prof. Iuliu Moldovan (1947 * – Institute of Hygiene in Cluj),

“ that health not only includes the physical, mental, and moral taken together, and also not only the present, but also the future, embracing individual’s entire lifespan or series of generations to come - when we are thinking of family or nation.

So that Public Health is the state of biological integrity: that is physical, mental and spiritual, not only in the present but also in the future, for the whole population of a country”

*Compare with the definition in the 1949 Constitution of the World Health Organization (WHO) : “Complete wellness from the physical, mental, and social points of view”.

The new public health l.jpg

Improvement or renewal of human being* become topical in the last decades for life sciences equally, particularly for preventive medicine.

* Theologically it is considered the way to Salvation: “…you have to get clothed into the renewed man, that following God, that built into Rightness and sanctity of Truth” (Ephesians, 4, 24).

The new public health

The new public health

Progress inHeAlthy Life Expectance (HALE)indices, that in developed countries are quite closely tracking the veryaverage life expectance at birth, sensibly displaced the object of medicine:

from the despair zone neighboring irreversible suffering & announced death


serenecontents of health.

* for example, Canada features a HALE index of 72 for an life expectance near to 80 years (source: Pfizer),

Hale in central east european countries l.jpg
HALE in Central East-European Countries

The proportion of elderly people in the populations of some CEE countries is almost 50% less than the average proportion in the EU and the percentage population age 65 and over in the CEE countries is predicted at only 14.5% for 2010.

In 2000, the average figure for HALE in CEE countries is 63,17 years,that is significantly lower than the EU15 average of 69,83 years.

(source: Pfizer 2003)

New public healthversus old medicine

  • Notice that:

  • we provisionally used fitnessfor pointing to performance + fulfillment +

  • happiness + beatitude+

  • Salvation.

  • 2. death is (strictly) individual, health has clear community co-notation while fitness has definitely a social significance.

3. whereas health is a normal point on a temporal axis, fitness is projected to the future while death retrogrades to the past.

Thus, nowadays individuals and health systems change the

orientationfrom disease to fitness, from conservation to

improvementof human species, from the past to the future.

Scope of healthy ageing program s l.jpg
Scope of healthy ageing programs:

  • Infuencing lifestyles towards behaviours known as decelerating ageing processes while maintaining intellectual capability and joy of living.

  • Giving elderly patients, and their families, the opportunity to live independent lives longer without the need for institutional care.

Slide8 l.jpg

Is Romania ready for healthy ageing?

Lets look at life expectancy at birth on Euro background:

How aged people are living in romania l.jpg
How aged people are living in Romania ?

CINDI* Pucioasa study may give some hints based on a sample of 600 from the 12,000 inhabitants of Pucioasa-town featured by mixed urban-rural life style, common in Romania.

*Country-wide Integrated Non-communicable Disease Intervention – an West&East new public health program led by WHO EURO. Romania entered CINDI in 1999.

Bilanţul glucidic este favorabil bărbaţilor la toate epocile de viaţă, iar întrasexe există o distribuţie credibilă cu epoca de viaţă.

Bilanţul lipidic global este iarăşi în favoarea bărbaţilor dar diferenţa este sensibil redusă prin compensarea între aplecarea dominantă a F spre grăsimi vegetale faţă de cea a M spre grăsimi animale.

Zahăruldirect (dizolvat) se găseşte aproximativ la jumătatea recomandărilor ISPB, sugerând o anumită insuficienţă. Cantitatea medie de zahăr dizolvat pe zi este: 37,4 g/zi zahăr M şi 35,2 g/zi zahăr F.

Făinoaselese găsesc uşor sub recomandările ISPB (media este de 241 g echivalent făină/zi la F şi 333 g/zi la M), media M+F=285.5 g/zi, iar

Lactatele(costuri mici în submontan) par a depăşi sensibil baremurile peste tot (media M+F este 1742 ml echivalent lapte/zi). Sarea în exces apare la 20,6 % M dar la numai 9,1 % F.

Assets for health ageing in romania l.jpg
Assets for health ageing in Romania

  • Ageing amidst families as opposed to institutionalized ageing in many Western countries

  • Spirituality: living after life acts as a potent anti-depressive

  • Spirituality-related aspects of life-style, e.g. applied to nutrition, smoking, alcohol, stress.

Drawbacks for healthy ageing in romania l.jpg
Drawbacks for healthy ageing in Romania

  • Bad habits* traditionally imbedded in local life-styles, e,g. fat & strong alcohols in Transylvania, smoking in Muntenia, reluctance to spare-time physical activity in Moldova.

  • Formal spirituality, i.e. not-applied in real-life behavior (schizoidic de-dublation of personality)

  • General poverty

    * Hierarchy of commomn risk factors for NCDs is in Romania: I. stress; II. smoking & alcohol; III. nutrition & sedentarism versus international CINDI scale topped by 1. smoking, 2. bad nutrition, 3. alcohol, 4. sedentarism, and 5. stress, in decreasing order of simnificance.

Is there a public interested in healthy ageing in romania l.jpg
Is there a public interested in healthy ageing in Romania?

  • Prejudgment: NO, Romanians are too poor think about it

  • Reality: living amides families under modest pensions, healthy elderly are by far more actively involved in social/economic activities than in Western countries

    So, recognizing revenue proportions, healthy elderly in Romania are perhaps more prone to add extra-revenues to pensions and to invest in maintaining their good shape.

Who are healthy elderly in romania l.jpg
Who are healthy elderly in Romania?

  • Liberal professions (self-employed)

  • (cultural and arts) Intelligentia

  • Clergy

  • Some peasants

  • International residents: Romanians retired from abroad, mixed families, Western pensioners seeking more natural framework (this group will rapidly evolve after 2007)

How can we reach them to encourage healthy ageing l.jpg
How can we reach them to encourage healthy ageing ?

  • Daily practice, both preventive and curative, of family physicians

  • Physical activities campaigns, e.g. “Put your heart on its feet this fall”

  • Quit&Win campaigns to abandon smoking

  • Seniors’ Club movement

  • Media health promotion for seniors:

    • Radio Romania, e.g. “Hour of Hope” (Romania Actuality), “Life and Health” (Romania Cultural)

    • Special Radios, e.g. “Vocea Sperantei” (confessional)

    • TV channels, e.g. “Mihai Gadea’s Hour of Health” on Realitatea TV

Asadar, îmbătrânirea sănătoasăîn România este ohimeră sau un obiectiv realist pentru medicina de familie ?

  • Raspunsul se gaseste in buna masura in mainile, dar mai ales in inimile si sufletele Dvs.

  • Va multumesc pentru raspunsul cel bun.
