Lidra Ballhysa

Abstract


In this paper the question whether Turkey, with the status as a Candidate country to enter in the European Union (EU) or not, will be discussed. This question will be discussed and analyzed from a public health point of view. Before starting with the analysis a general description about the current situation in Turkey will be presented in terms of health status, the main problems and threats at community level, which criteria stated from EU are already achieved from Turkey and others which they still need to work on. Turkey has currently the status of a candidate country to enter in the EU, but still the question to become a member state is a big dilemma for the EU politicians due to the possible impact that it would have in terms of economy, population, religion, cultural diversity etc.
