Maintaining a healthy life is critical for a worker, especially those who undertake strenuous physical tasks. In rural and tribal areas people are primarily employed in such strenuous physical labor. Similarly, employers should also give importance to the health care of its workers through its policies. When employers show interest in the well being of their employees, they in turn will also feel more responsible and loyal towards the organization. It improves employee retention, reduces absenteeism and improves productivity.
Staying healthy for kids is vital for proper growth and development of their mind and body. They require enough energy to spend the entire day in school and enable them to focus in the classroom and fully participate in the activities on the field. For this, they need proper nutrition. Even though, most parents have a basic knowledge of food and health related issues. However, they often fail to understand that regular medical check-up is a must for every child. This helps them to learn from the experts whether the child’s development in terms of height and weight is proper. They should also take the child for dental check-up and eye check-up on a regular basis. Even child behavior has to be monitored closely. This way any major health problem can be prevented in future. Also better access to health and nutrition improves child’s survival and benefits in family planning.
