This curriculum has been prepared in accordance to the WHO target for ensuring cheap, affordable quality and easily accessible health services for all developing countries where a high percentage of population live below the poverty line i.e. they earn less than one dollar per day and thus the need for the motto “prevention is better than cure.”
