    It’s amazing how in some countries still do not give real attention to docenças as: Diabetes, HIV, cancer, etc.

    The disease kills many people each year and realize that nursing is still precarious, frankly health should be available to everyone, it’s a shame not to be.

    Very good, usually people in several countries besides suffering with the disease suffer to have access to medicines, currently live in Brazil and knowing some cases, I see how difficult it is for these people.

    I always believe that if you want to do something then you can do that. I am associated with an NGO that helps HIV victims and offered them free medical treatment along with rehabilitation. We all know that proper care can change the life of victims. I am john associated with health firm ( that offered quality medicines at affordable price.

    I would like to add one more resources into the list.
    The resource is about Sexually Transmitted Diseases and their testing options.
    You’ll find a lot of help on the site I just found on the internet about STDs and testing.
    Check out the resource here :

    Health and Prevention both are the main topic which have very very long discussion. Now here you showed the value of both of them especially for the children because mostly they are victim and looking good health. Infect, I read a lot of articles related to health from I already said that Health is very necessary for everyone. Without good health there is not meaning of a lot of walth.

    Health is ncessary for everyone. Everyone want a good health to live happy life. Here you talked about the ratio of different dieases which are common in children. Due to work of some organization and health related department that ratio decline. We should support health and prevention resources. Infect, I read a good post on similr topic at and now this one. Authors of both posts did good research on that topic. Thanks.
