"Abstract Objectives: To determine the prevalence and risk factors of posttraumatic stress disorder and depression among physically present and indirectly uncovered populations in Sri Lanka eight years after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Methods: A population-based structured survey was conducted among Sri Lankan adults living in 5 coastal districts, Hamboantha, Matara, Galle, Kalutara, and Colombo in 2012-2013. To determine risk factors for partial PTSD and depression, Bivariate and several logistic regression regressions with backward selection were used. Results: In the DE group, the prevalence of PTSD, partial PTSD, and depression was 2. 8%, 10. 5%, and 18. 8%, respectively.

"With the latest Short Form Health Survey, we assessed physical health. " With multivariate linear regression, we investigated the connection between tsunami exposure and physical fitness. Participants with personal injury or business loss of employment reported poorer physical fitness than those unaffected, according to women and older adults, who were exposed to greater health risks. Those who suffered from the tsunami event adversely affected physical appearance and mental stability, and the consequences can last for longer than a year, which is the normal time when most public and private relief services are withdrawing.

"Using structured interviews and the Harvard Trauma Questionnaire, we surveyed adults aged 18 years or older in a severely impacted coastal village in Tamil Nadu, India, two months after the December 2004 tsunami in a severely affected coastal village. " The prevalence of posttraumatic stress disorder in people with no household income, women, or those wounded in the tsunami was 12. 7%, with posttraumatic stress disorder on the rise among people with no household incomes, women, and those injured during the tsunami.
