Introduction: People’s social health refers to the aftermath of a person’s well-being, which is related to how that person interacts with others, how people react to him or her, and how that person interacts with social institutions and social customs. The aim of this study was to evaluate the social health of students of Army University of Medical Sciences.
Methods and Materials: This descriptive-analytical and cross-sectional study was conducted in AJA University of Medical Sciences in 1399. A total of 300 students were participated in the study. Questionnaires were distributed among them. 241 questionnaires were fully completed and analyzed. Data were analyzed through Kolmogorov-Smirnov, Mann- Whitney, Kruskal-Wallis and Spearman tests using SPSS software version 23. In addition P < 0.05 was considered significant.
Results: There was a significant relationship between education and all dimensions of social health (cohesion, participation, acceptance, adaptation, and prosperity) (P ≤ 0.05). There was also a significant relationship between age and the dimension of social participation (P < 0.05). However, there was not any significant relationship between age and other dimensions of social health. The variable of marital status also had a significant relationship only with the dimension of social participation (P < 0.05). It did not show a significant relationship with other dimensions of social health. There was a significant relationship between variable of the field of study and four dimensions of social health (cohesion, participation, adaptation, and prosperity) (P < 0.05).
