Health is not merely an absence of disease, but it is a state of physical, mental and social well being. The poor for example have majority of the diseases because they do not have enough to eat. Malnutrition decreases the immunity that leads to increased vulnerability for infections. A malnourished family falls prey to diseases subsequently.
A massive effort is required to debate, discuss and analyze the health crisis caused by modernization and then to develop strategies, based on the principles of social justice, to establish a world where poor people can also achieve health.
