Health is a state of complete physical, mental, social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

How important is good health

A person who is healthy has a state of well- being in which he or she realizes his or her own abilities, is able to cope with life’s normal stresses, can work regularly and productively, and is also able to make a contribution to the community. Good health, therefore, is the foundation for an individual’s and a community’s effective functioning and well-being.
