To meet the growing demands of the competitive world, most of us tend to ignore our health until we are compelled to confront a medical complication. To cope up with a rising risk of the medical disorders, health monitors have become mandatory. After all, most health problems can be managed more effectively if detected early. This becomes more of a problem in rural areas and village due to weak infrastructure. Keeping this in mind, the health awareness and check-up program of United Association for Public Health & Education (UAPHE) was conducted at Rasal Pali Village on the request of Green Health Foundation on Sunday, 15th March 2015 with the aims to preserve and promote good health, to prevent disease and disability and to facilitate early diagnosis and treatment of illness.

It has been rightly said that health is wealth. A good health enables individual to live life comfortable and at peace. But sadly, handful of people enjoys the benefits of health. There has been a huge health disparity between urban vs. rural population and also urban poor population. Furthermore the affordiality and accessibility to healthcare compromises the health of such population. Without significant intervention, India is headed for a major public health calamity in future decades from cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other tobacco-related diseases.

Even though we at 21st Century promote medical tourism and state of art Health care facilities but a major segment of our society still look for basic primary health care services.
