Health

Health is the pillar of the well-being of every human. Be it women empowerment activity or child development, health is of utmost priority. It is as important as education for society.

Nearly 820 million people, i.e., 11% of the world population, have been declared malnourished. Almost 7.3 billion people, which is more than half of the global population, don’t have access to essential healthcare services. Clearly, the health and nutrition of people are getting compromised daily. On the one hand, we have poverty, and on the other, lack of knowledge about proper healthy life. Both result in poor health conditions in people, especially women, children, and senior citizens, in third world countries.

Health issues arise from factors. It is shocking that people in slums and tribal areas are still run by blind faith and prefer to stay oblivious to women and child health, malnutrition, and sanitary condition. Moreover, many countries suffer from a lack of potable water in remote areas. The rising pollution and uncontrolled contamination often lead to various health hazards. Waterborne diseases are quite common in developing countries. Even in today’s world, many countries have rural areas where open-defecation and uncontrolled waste disposal happens. People are often not aware of the ill-effects of consuming contaminated water.

Health issues are not restricted to water contamination. Domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual harassment have their consequences on women and children’s health. Plus, malnutrition due to poverty and unawareness persists highly among children in slums. Years of negligence have made women ignorant of their own health.

 

Each of these conditions needs improvement. Though Governments have rolled out several healthcare schemes for the rural areas, locals are hardly aware of it. The subsidies, medical facilities, medicines, proper food, and drinking water often don’t reach the poverty-stricken areas. There are places where impoverished people are repeatedly denied fundamental rights to healthcare.
