GUZMAN ROSARIO, D et al. What have we changed over a decade? Comparative study of health care provided in Lebanon (UNIFIL Operation) IN 2006 AND 2016. Sanid. Mil. [online]. 2017, vol.73, n.4, pp.245-252. ISSN 1887-8571.


In 2016, Spain celebrates a decade of presence in Lebanon within the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL). The aim of the present study is to analyze the evolution of the health care provided in two Spanish contingents deployed in that area of operations, comparing two periods with ten years of elapsed time.

Material and methods:

A cross-sectional retrospective study was carried out during two periods (from the 8th of September to the 8th of November of 2006 and from the 3rd of September to the18th of November of 2016). The study population was the patients treated in the first Medical Treatment Facility during those periods.


The data of the first and second time interval respectively were: deployed troops 523/562; medical assistance performed 1168/1435; Digestive diseases 269/423; Otorhinolaryngological diseases 222/147; Minor surgery 187/75; Dermatological disease 175/128; Traumatology 152/413; Dental disease 58/128; Ophthalmologic disease 53/16; Other 70/105; Evacuations to ROLE 2 4/76 and evacuations to ROLE 4 0/0.


There is a similarity between the health care provided in both periods of time, except in the traumatic diseases, because there was an increase of almost 300% during the second interval of time.
