Health Problems Among Omani and Kuwaiti Undergraduates Cross Culture Study

Auther : Dr. Ali M. Kazem - Prof. Bader M. Alansari

     This study examined cultural differences among Omani and Kuwaiti undergraduates on health problems. The Health Problem Checklist (Schinka, 1989) was administered to determine prevalence, cultural, and gender differences in health problems among 522 subjects (222 Omani and 300 Kuwaiti). The results reveal high rates of health problems among Kuwaitis in the problems of history of diseases-endocrine/ hematological, and negative behavioral habits; while the high rates of diseases among Omanis were in mouth/ teeth/ neck, history of diseases, and ear/ nose. Furthermore, the examination of cultural differences showed that Kuwaitis had higher means in endocrine/ hematological, negative behavioral habits, genitourinary for men, and brain/ neurological problems than the Omanis had. As expected, females were significantly higher than males in the problems of general health, dermatology, vision, cardio/ pulmonary, gastrointestinal, brain/ neurological, orthopedics, and endocrine/ hematological.
