Health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social-being and not merely an absence of disease or infirmity. Physical health and mental health are inter-related. A sound mind in a sound body is an old and appropriate saying for good health.
Education is bot possible without good health that is why we put our camps in rural and Slums area in order to provide free Health check up.
For most people, good hygiene is so much a part of their daily routines that they think little about it. They bathe, they brush their teeth, visit the dentist and doctor for regular checkups, and wash their hands when preparing or eating food and handling unsanitary items. To keep those you care about healthy and safe, help them learn, and be sure that they are practicing, good personal hygiene.
Hygiene habits such as washing your hands and brushing and flossing your teeth will help keep bacteria, viruses, and illnesses at bay. And there are mental as well as physical benefits. “Practicing good body hygiene helps you feel good about yourself, which is important for your mental health,” notes Donald Novey, MD, an integrative medicine physician with the Advocate Medical Group in Park Ridge, Ill. People who have poor hygiene — disheveled hair and clothes, body odor, bad breath, missing teeth, and the like — often are seen as unhealthy and may face discrimination.
MENSTRUAL HYGEINE AWARENESS DRIVE
Women spend around six to seven years of their lives menstruating. Yet the importance of menstrual hygiene management (MHM) is mostly neglected. Menstrual hygiene is a taboo subject; a topic that many women are uncomfortable discussing in public. This is compounded by gender inequality, which excludes women and girls from decision-making processes. Seventy percent of mothers consider menstruation ‘dirty’.
Our approach is to promote awareness among the girls and women and their families and introduce new, low cost, locally appropriate simple solutions.
In India, recently, there has been an increasing recognition of the importance of menstrual hygiene. Ministries recognize that MHM can improve young women’s health, nutritional status and well-being, as well as their school enrolment and retention, potentially conferring long-term health, social, and economic benefits.We make efforts towards embedding measures within the system to promote menstrual hygiene, and give women and girls the confidence and space to voice their need for improved menstrual hygiene. Our work focusses on integrating menstrual hygiene management into programmes and policies across key sectors including WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene), health, women and girls development, education and rights, from community to the national levels.
