This descriptive cross-sectional and analytical study was performed on 153 of staff working at two sectors of pardis and setad of Ilam University of Medical Sciences. The participants were selected using the random sampling method. General Health Questionnaire (G.H.Q-28), which contains 28 items measuring general health, was used for data collection. To analyze the data, ANOVA, Chi-square test, Spearman correlation, and independent t-test were run in SPSS, version 16.

Findings: The results showed that 50.3% of the studied population had health score of 0-22 (healthy group). Spearman correlation test showed a significant correlation between general health and marital status (P<0.05, r=0.164), but no significant difference was observed between the staff of the two sectors in terms of general health and its subscales (P>0.05).
