PDF File Size: 90 KB | Download   
Health education is an essential tool of community health to inform and motivate people to adopt and maintain healthy practices and lifestyles. To increase awareness of the curability and preventability of certain diseases among the general public, mass media such as television, newspapers and posters are generally employed.
Over the last 15 years the government of Nepal has issued postage stamps as a way of raising awareness of health issues in the general population and especially in remote communities. The topics covered by 8 different stamps are good child health care practices, combating drug abuse, hazards of smoking, prevention of AIDS, prevention of blindness due to cataract, fighting cancer and rehabilitation of disabled people.
