The Importance of Good Health

 ‘Good health is a
crown which only the ill can see’ (Ali-The fourth Caliph of Islam)
Good health is the most powerful tool we have for moving
forward with our aspirations. It is much too easy to forget how vital good
health is for communities to be able to prosper. Being free from sickness and
disease allows children to attend school, learn and grow into educated strong
adults.

With medical care, a country's workforce is strengthened as adults are fit, healthy and strong enough to work full and productive days. If the main breadwinner has to stay at home with illness, they are not able to earn to provide for their families. Not only does the family fall into financial hardship, but work is left undone and the economy slows down and suffers. 

Current situation

Due to high poverty levels in the developing world, many unfortunate people are made to suffer in poor conditions which have resulted in the spreading of infectious diseases. But due to lack of equipment they are left untreated- made to suffer.
