    Default Health issues in India

    The land of India is a blessed land in several ways. The land used to be called the golden bird. The country still has enough potential to be a super power in the world. However, a major road block in this regard is the health issue in India. The general health standard of India is extremely bad. It is a shame that, even in this modern world, there are kids who die out of malnutrition. Several surveys have proved that the major section of the new born suffer from malnutrition.

    Major section of the children does not get the required vaccinations done. A very big percentage of the children, die before crossing the age of 5. This is a very shameful fact. The government of India have revived the health system in several ways.The health for all program, saw several free hospitals being setup.The international organizations like the WHO and UNICEF have extended their hands to help India in this context. These movements have helped the cause in some way. However there is still a lot of work to do in this regard. The first thing that needs to be done is to make the common mass aware of certain things. The country still witnesses shameful acts of killing the girl child.we Indians should come forward to save the Girl Child

    The exact picture of the health condition of India is not a pretty one by any means. The government would need to take the issue very seriously and must come with proper plans to solve this problem. The health problems of India have affected India in other sectors as well. Thus, it is extremely important for us to get rid of this problem. The government had been trying, but it is tough to solve a problem of this magnitude in a country like India, which has such a huge population pressure, so quickly.

    What are current health issues in India?

    Default Current Health Issues in India

    India is the emerging leader in medical advancements with many skilled health professionals. However the quality of health care still remains aback. There are many issues in the health sector of India that need a firm upliftment and thorough review. With the increasing population and following western culture, India is raising concerns over the issues.

    Some of the Current health issues that need to be looked into are:

    Spread of epidemics : There are some diseases like dengue and flu which spread quite quickly in vast areas because of improper sanitary conditions and lack of preventive measures. The population living in the rural areas is too vulnerable to such kind of diseases which spread easily. Preventive measures should be taken to curb the widespread of such diseases. The primary Healthcare units which have been established should be equipped with sufficient number of medications to treat bulk population if there is any endemic arising.

    Smoking : Over one million people die every year due to smoking tobacco. Smoking causes serious diseases such as Lung cancer, Emphysema, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD).

    HIV and AIDS : India ranks number four in the world with the number of people suffering from AIDS. The major regions in India affected with the disease are the southern and north eastern regions. There are various policies from the government to check on this issue. National AIDS control organization is set up to keep an eye on the spread of the disease. Though the rate of infection has declined over a period, more effective strategies has to be developed to further control the spread of the disease.

    Malnutrition in India : There is large number of population suffering from malnutrition, especially the children. In the rural areas about one thirds of the children born are under weight. This issue needs to be looked into with broader and effective prospects

    health is one of the most important aspects of our lives, however, it is also one of the most neglected aspects. we are worried about our education, merits in college, career, salary hike, weather, travelling, increasing fuel rates, and almost everything around us, but seldom do we pay any importance to our health; at least not until we face a problem. only when our back pains, we will get off the computer system, despite knowing the fact that continuous sitting is way too harmful.

    there are many health issues in india and one f the most important health problem that people face is the problem of obesity and spondalitis. the problem of spondalitis is becoming common among the people of 18 and more which used to occur only in 30+ women. but these days teenagers are getting this problem at rapid speed though injections are now available for this disease to cure and that too should be injected when the child is at the age of 6..

    Immunity problems, malnutrition, iodine deficiency, filaria, hepatitis, cancer are some of diseases seen in early born babies. All these diseases are transferred from mother’s womb to baby. So pregnant ladies should be very aware of these diseases and mostly they need to be healthy to keep her baby healthy
    IGE is a protein which is responsible for immunity of a human being, which probably works for life time. This protein is developed only by breast feeding. But now a day’s mother is afraid of the body conformation changes due to breast feeding. Because of such irresponsibility’s health problems are rises in level

    International Organizations Coming To India's Aid. Many poor children in India doesn't get the necessary vaccinations, a large percentage of Indian kids die under 5 years age only. Indian government revived its health system in various ways to deal this issues, starting with setting up free hospitals. UNICEF, WHO even led their support to Indian Government.
