Ēvalds Višķers

Abstract


On daily occasions the notions “health” and “quality of life” are often used as interrelated ones. It is due to the fact that the definition of the health condition denotes many factors also including the notion of life quality, e.g. physical health and functionality, social functionality and public health. In Latvia under the heath care reforms it is necessary to analyze the trends of changes and their impact on our society. Using the available statistical information the article describes the main health care indicators in Latgale and compares them in the context of Latvia and the European Union. The article has been developed within the framework of the project “Linguo-Cultural and Socio-Economic Aspects of Territorial Identity in the Development of the Region of Latgale”.
