Title Indirect health consequences of war: cardiovascular disease
Date 2009-10-20
Description This study examines the impact of armed conflict on male and female adult cardiovascular disease mortality. This is an indirect health consequence of war that has not been given enough attention in social science research. The depletion of resources, access to health care, and general disruption to everyday life during times of armed conflict create excess stress and burdens, which increase deaths caused by cardiovascular disease. I use a variety of data to measure demographic, developmental, and conflict-related outcomes. I find that all types of armed conflict increase the cardiovascular disease mortality rates among both females and males across countries and over time.
