Awareness, education is key to prevention of diseases. If any disease is diagnosed and treated early we can have a completely different outcome. We have so many specialist doctors at the health faith who are helping to bring about health awareness. I am really impressed that BAPS Charities is doing very good to help the participants who do not have access to health care.
