Healthcare

Healthcare refers to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of physical and mental health conditions. Healthcare is provided by a range of professionals, including doctors, nurses, therapists, and other healthcare workers. Healthcare is an essential part of maintaining the well-being of individuals and communities, and it is a critical component of any society. Access to quality healthcare is a fundamental human right, and many countries have systems in place to ensure that individuals have access to the healthcare services they need. Healthcare can be provided in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, and community health centers. It can also be delivered through public or private insurance programs.
