Mortality control program for economically productive age group
Problem Background :
Many people in age group of 16-60 years were dying prematurely due to illnesses like TB, hypertension, heart attack, pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, etc. Most of the deaths were due to wrong life style, unhygienic practices, addiction & lack of medical facilities etc.
This is economically productive age group for any society or country & cannot afford to lose their lives, affecting families, communities and countries.
