1.6.2016 : Áhrif íslenska efnahagshrunsins á heilsu barnshafandi kvenna og fæðingarútkomur - verkefni lokið

In the autumn 2008, Icelanders experienced a sudden national economic collapse. From being one of the richest nations in the world, the country suffered a major economic breakdown, affecting all inhabitants of Iceland in some way. Recent studies on the health consequences of the Icelandic economic collapse suggest an increase in depressive symptoms and perceived psychological stress, as well as an immediate short-term increase in attendance to a cardiac emergency department, among women in particular.
