This implies that all obstacles or barriers to health such as malnutrition, ignorance, contaminated drinking water, unhygienic housing, and lack of medical personnel, infrastructure, drugs and vaccines must be eliminated. Furthermore, health should be regarded as an object, or rather factor, for economic development. Health for all demands that everybody must be literate so that he/she should genuinely understand and appreciate the actual meaning of health. Health for all depends on continued progress in medical care and public health. The services must be accessible through primary health care. This also calls for the achievement of the universal coverage of the immunisation programme. To conclude, primary health care for all is a holistic concept which calls for partnerships with other fields such as agriculture, industry, education, housing, and communication, in addition to public health and medicine. This combination will ensure that every human being achieves a higher quality of life. 2016-07-14 14:07:37

    wasili gomani Malawi PRIMARY HEALTH CARE FOR ALL PRIMARY HEALTH CARE: Primary health care is the essential health care that is based on scientifically sound and socially acceptable methods and technoloy, which make universal health care accessible to all individuals and families in a community. It is the first level of contact that individuals, families and communities have with the health care system. In other words, primary health care is the basic help available in every village backed by referral services to more specialised care. 2016-07-14 13:07:26

    wasili gomani Malawi WHAT IS HEALTH? Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. It is not only the absence of disease. A disease is an anatomical, a physiological or a mental disorder of the body. The unhealthy or diseased state of an individual is called morbidity. The state of being dead is called mortality. Mortality and morbidity are used to calculate the probability that a disease will cause death. The measure of the average time an individual is expected to live is called life expectancy. For instance, the life expectancy in Japan is 83 years. Health leads to increased life expectancy. 2016-07-14 09:07:49
