Service Wing - Prevention is Better than Cure

Disease prevention is a key principle of the Sathya Sai Ideal Healthcare model. Speaking on the topic, Bhagawan said, "One sacred duty of the doctor is to advise persons on how to preserve health and prevent disease. Instead of treating people after the onset of illness, it is better to ensure that they do not fall ill at all. What is the use of spending millions on curative measures without promoting health? It is a waste of money"

The Sathya Sai Health Awareness Days (SSHAD) which are being organised by the Service Wing of the Sri Sathya Sai Service Organisation UK, embrace the Ideal - “Prevention is better than cure."

The objectives of the SSHAD are:
• To increase awareness of commonly occurring diseases.
• To increase awareness of healthy lifestyle options and disease prevention.
• To increase awareness of local National Health Services.

This service initiative is being delivered through sustained partnership with the local National Health Service, healthcare charities, and the love and dedication of healthcare professionals and volunteers, who give freely of their time and skills.

Over the past two months, there have been a number of Sathya Sai Health Awareness Days conducted in different regions around the UK, with more planned in the month to come. We pray, that we are blessed with the opportunity to conduct many more SSHADs across the country. Below, there are a few reports from recent SSHADs.

Should you be inspired to organise a SSHAD in your area, please get in touch with your centre Service Coordinator or Chairperson. Alternatively, you may wish to contact the National Healthcare Team by sending an email to: saihealthcare@srisathyasai.org.uk
