It has been widely spoken, “prevention is better than cure”. Preventive healthcare has become utmost important especially in the environment we are living today. Ideally, each individual is advised to go for routine health checkups even if they are living a healthy life since many diseases are asymptomatic in nature.
In 2017, we conducted mass survey amongst people regarding their lifestyle and their frequency of doctor visits. This survey led us to a common mindset amongst majority of people who believes that, it is too expensive to pay a visit to a doctor for routine health checkups while they feel they are living a healthy life. But the fact remained that our environment and lifestyle is constantly prone to viruses and health problems. People had become more reliant on the information they read on the internet rather than a doctor. We feel information on the internet is reliable to an extent, but that does not bypass a check-up from a doctor, which would give more comprehensive outlook to an individuals’ health concern.
