Abstract
The health is a complex phenomenon defined by OMS as "not only the absence of illness or infirmity, but also the physical and psyche welfare and social integration". The health state of population should be a major preoccupation of every state and the maintenance of this is an essential condition for a productive economically and social life. Not only the genetics factors, but also risks factors associated with life style have an important role in health influence. It is well known the role of diet (fibbers, fat and vitamins consumption) in some disease etymology, and unhealthy habit like smoking and excessive alcohol drinking associated with sedentariness and obesity contribute to aggravate some affections.

Social and economical conditions, especially the income of population and its distribution, are related to the population health; low incomes limit the access to resources as food, houses, medicines and medical care.Environmental quality constitutes an important determinate, which could have a positive or negative influence on health state, even if this is indirectly seen. As access and quality health services contribute to prevent and curative diseases.

Every mentioned factor could be more or less important for the health of population. but the health problems are often generated by their synergist action (Figure 1). The illness limits the individually autonomy and reduces the work capability and productivity; the assurance of a good health of population means a longer productive life and the reduction of social and public costs.
