This descriptive study was held on the staff working at Sihhiye Campus of University of Hacettepe. It was aimed to find out the health status of personnel involved in health screening program at the university, and to increase the awareness of importance of regular (periodic) health examination. Chi-square and multivariate logistic regression were used for the analysis of data obtained from the study, and the yield of screening was also estimated. Of the total accessed staff, 48.9% were female, 26.7% of them were between 40-44 years old, 35.1% were academic staff, 76.7% were married. From the staff interviewed during the screening, 10.4% were obese. Among all personnel, 15.1% had an accident, 65.2% of them were traffic (motor vehicle) accidents. Following the screening, 18.0% of the staff were started to take medication, and 67.6% of which were related to hematologic or nutritional illnesses. Of the cases reported by personnel themselves, 16.7% and 34.4% of cases newly diagnosed were "endocrine, nutritional and metabolic" related disorders. Diseases with the highest yield of screening were other diseases of urinary system (97.0%), obesity (90.3%), lipoprotein metabolism disorders and other lipidemias (81.9%), metabolic disorders (81.4%), and liver diseases (80.0%). The frequency of other diseases of urinary system group was found 5.8 times higher in women than in men. The frequency of obesity was found 3.9 times higher in married staff than unmarried staff, 1.8 times higher in administrative staff than academic staff, 5.7 times higher over the age of 40 than under the age of 41. The frequency lipoprotein metabolism disorders, and other lipidemias group was found 2.5 times higher in men than in women, 1.7 times higher in academic staff than administrative staff, 2.7 times higher over the age of 40 than under the age of 41. The frequency of metabolic disorders group was found 2.4 times higher in men than in women, 1.6 times higher in academic staff than administrative staff, 2.7 times higher over the age of 40 than under the age of 41. The frequency of liver diseases group was found 5.6 times higher in men than in women, 2.1 times higher over the age of 40 than under the age of 41. Making special interventions and cost analysis on the most common diseases with the highest yield identified by screening and the risk factors provides health protection and promotion on staff and also may provide control of these diseases cost effectively.
