Health and Well-Being

“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.” – Buddha

According to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity” Only a healthy individual can realize his or her own abilities, can cope with the adversities of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community. Health has different components broadly categorised as Social, Mental and Physical health. Health is a state of balance, an equilibrium that an individual has established within himself and between himself and his social and physical environment. Social Welfare Division of ICERT is working on promotion of health as a process by which the capacity of individuals to cope will be enhanced and strengthened. 

SDG 3 envision ensuring healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. Under its 13 targets, team ICERT is working on promoting mental health, maternal health, physical health awareness and capacity building, reproductive health, prevention of substance abuse, road safety by building capacity of people in preventing road injuries and death, and empowering health professionals. For achieving these targets team ICERT also join hands with other organization and volunteers as per SDG 17. 

Nutrition is a basic human need and a prerequisite for healthy life. A proper diet is essential from very early age of life for growth, development and active life. Poverty is a major cause of ill health and a barrier to accessing health care when needed. This relationship is financial: the poor cannot afford to purchase those things that are needed for good health, including sufficient quantities of quality food and health care. But the relationship is also related to other factors related to poverty, such as lack of information on appropriate health-promoting practices or lack of voice needed to make social services work for them. We are working with poor people by building their capacity on nutrition and health, developing resilience, empowering for education, and employment, preventing malnutrition from early age, research and advancement in agricultural practices, as per the target under SDG 1, and SDG 2.
