HITT-CIS is a follow-up project that continues the research efforts started by the FP5 INCO-Copernicus Project LLH (Living Conditions, Lifestyles and Health). The project tries to better understand the circumstances under which people in post-Soviet countries live, what the quality of the health services is and how they access healthcare facilities. Furthermore, our aim is to access their healthy or unhealthy lifestyles, patterns of nutrition, quality and forms of food they usually buy and consume, as well as habits of alcohol and tobacco consumption. On top of that, we shall evaluate the efficiency of public policies at national, regional and local levels.
