Abstract: 

Introduction: Healthy women make the society healthy both somatically and psychologically. This study was planned to assess the general health status of female athletes of national teams to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of these national capitals. This will be effective in planning for improvement of health and professional performance of these athletes.
Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study on 156 female athletes of national teams was performed in 2001 with a census method. Specialist physicians recorded information according to history, physical examination, and paraclinic. T-test, chi-square, and correlation coefficients were used in analysis.
Results: Mean age was 20.47 (19.53-21.41) years. In orthopedic assessment 96.1%, cardiovascular 74.4%, dental 29.4%, eye 69.2%, and Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) 66% had no problem in either history or physical examination.
Conclusion: Orthopedic status was completely desirable, cardiovascular and ENT were intermediate, visual was nearly and dental status was completely undesirable. Informing and sensitizing managers about the health status of female athletes of national teams can be an effective step in planning for disease prevention, screening, and treatment of athletes.
