Health Awareness among Youth: A Case Study of Two Districts of Sindh
Youth account for 41.81 percent population of the country. They are facing all kind of problems. The circumstances of youth in Sindh are rather appalling. Although credible data on youth problems is not available, yet youth suicide is common in the province. Given this background, this paper evaluates the availability of health infrastructure and youth awareness about different health problems in two districts of Sindh. The results indicate inadequate health infrastructure and acute lack of knowledge among the youth about health related legislation and health problems. This calls for government intervention in terms of providing improved health infrastructure and health awareness of people of the province.
