, Méthodes : En 2017, une étude transversale utilisant un échantillon de grappes stratifiées a été menée conformément à l'approche STEP de l'OMS. Un échantillon de 2240 participants âgés de ?25 ans ont participé à l'étude. Résultats : La prévalence de la maladie coronarienne est de 8,3 %, AVC est de 3,0 %, l'hypertension artérielle est retrouvée avec une prévalence de 28,4 %, le diabète 19,1 % et l'obésité 47,8 % (60% chez les femmes). L'artériopathie oblitérante des membres inférieurs (AOMI) est observé avec une prévalence de 13,7 %. La prévalence augmente avec l'âge. Elle est plus élevée chez les femmes que chez les hommes (15,6% vs 11,6% respectivement). L'hypertension artérielle et le diabète sont les facteurs associés les plus importants.

Also, the burden of risk factors is worrying; one quarter of adult population was hypertensives, tobacco smoking exceeds 30% in males, obesity is alarming mainly in females, and 9.2% of adults are living with diabetes. Very few community-based on CVD studies were conducted in these countries. Methods: In 2017 a cross-sectional study using stratified cluster sample, was conducted in accordance with WHO's STEP wise. A sample of 2240 participants aged ?25 years participated in the study. Results: The prevalence of CAD is 8.3%, stroke 3.0%, hypertension is found with a prevalence of 28.4%, diabetes19.1% and obesity 47.8% with higher rate in females (60%), Maladies cardiovasculaires, facteurs de risques, bande de Gaza-Palestine Epidemiology of Cardiovascular disease and associated risk factors in Gaza Strip-Palestine Introduction: Arab Middle East Countries which have a predominance of young population have undergone rapid socioeconomic changes, instability and epidemiologic transition, vol.3, 2018. ,
