Health in Cyprus

In 2006, life expectancy for males in Cyprus was 79 and for females 82 years.[1] Infant mortality in 2002 was 5 per 1,000 live births, comparing favourably to most developed nations.[2]

A systematic population analysis of deaths in the adult population (ages 15–59) and released in 2010 in The Lancet place Cyprus as the country with the lowest mortality in females and 14th lowest mortality in males.[3][4]


In 2015 it was estimated that 10.2% of the population has diabetes, costing about $2,295 per person per year.[5]


Smoking rates in Cyprus are considered high by international standards. WHO Statistics from 1998 show that 38.5% of males were smokers.[6]
