PEREZ CARDENAS, Clara. Health criteria in women at different ages. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2004, vol.20, n.1. ISSN 0864-2125.

The descriptive work carried out in the first quarter of 2001 in the health area of "Dr. Mario Escalona Reguera" Teaching Polyclinic, in Alamar, Havana City, is shown. The interviews and surveys done among women at different ages are presented. Their criteria about the health concept are determined and according to them it is possible to know how they evaluate their current health status, what they think they should do to improve it and what they really do in this sense. The main results make us believe that it is necessary to create groups to reflect on this topic, to approach it from different angles and to attain changes in their attitude in the long term. It is stressed the fact that the adult surveyed women were astonished when they heard about the topic of the interview and they themselves recognized that they had never considered it.

Keywords : Women; health; psychology.
