In this study the health status of Kuwait University undergraduates was examined. The Health Problems Checklist (Schinka, 1989) was administered to determine the prevalence and the gender differences in health problems among 945 participants (343 males and 602 females). The frequency percentage to test the prevalence rates of variables and t test analyses were performed using SPSS to assess the differences between the means of variables. These were high rates of health problems among males in the variables of dermatology, audio/olfactory, general, endocrine/hematological, genitourinary, neurological, and gastro-intestinal; while high rates for females were in the variables of genitourinary, dermatology, endocrine/hematological, neurological, gastrointestinal, cardio/pulmonary heart/lung, and orthopedics/bones. Furthermore, the examination of gender variables showed that males had higher rates in the variables of gastrointestinal and health habits, while females had higher rates in genitourinary, general, endocrine/hematological, and stomach-related health problems.
