You are a doctor for yourself

Posted on at

As Afghanistan becomes more crowded, the percentage of diseases is going up day by day. This growing shows that we don’t care before we get sick. Pollutions, dust and more others are problems which brings different diseases. Also the amount of bad foods on the markets is another factor to take care for.

Food products with expired date is caused that people pays a big amount for doctors and drugs to become healthy, but problem is the date of drugs too. This is the reason that people become their own doctor through take caring of good sanitary and cleanliness standards.

Combating infections and hygiene help to maintain health and prevent the spread of diseases. Good hygiene should be in different affairs in home and as well outside of home to prevent spread of diseases poor sanitation is primary cause of disease in developing countries such as Afghanistan.

You can just do a specific set of practices to prevent or at least to minimize disease and the spreading of disease if you want to be your own doctor. These practices include environmental cleaning, sterilization of equipment, hand hygiene, protective clothing, masks and gloves, and safe disposal of medical waste.
