The public healthcare systems across nations may be a conglomeration of all organized activities that prevent disease, prolong life, and promote the health and efficiency of its people. The Indian healthcare system has been historically dominated by the provisioning of medical aid and neglected public healthcare.
Primary Healthcare or PHC refers to "essential health care" that's supported scientifically sound and socially acceptable methods and technology. This makes universal healthcare accessible to all or any individuals and families during a community. PHC initiatives leave the complete participation of community members in the implementation and decision. Services are provided at a price that the community and therefore the country can afford at every stage of their development within the spirit of self-reliance and self-determination. In other words, PHC is an approach to health beyond the normal healthcare system that focuses on health equity-producing policy. PHC includes all areas that play a task in health, like access to health services, environment, and lifestyle. Thus, primary healthcare and public healthcare measures, taken together, could also be considered because of the cornerstones of universal health systems.

Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the health and medical care of infants, children, and adolescents from infancy through adolescence. A pediatrician is a pediatrician who provides medical care to children who are acutely or chronically unwell as well as preventative health services to children who are healthy. In both sickness and health, a pediatrician is responsible for the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of the children under their care.
Pediatricians diagnose and treat a variety of illnesses in children, including the following:
· Genetic and congenital conditions
· Organ diseases and dysfunctions
The goal of community health and preventive medicine is to figure out how to avoid diseases. A community is a group of people who share the same geographical area, setting, objective, or social interest despite having various traits. Community health encompasses a wide range of health-care interventions, such as disease prevention, detection, and treatment. It also covers administration. Community health workers (CHWs) are frequently front-line health professionals who are familiar with the community's unique traits and developments. They are frequently community people who play a vital role in community care's operation.
The therapeutic discipline of internal medicine is concerned with the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of adult diseases. Internal medicine's main purpose is to prevent and treat diseases in order to extend people's lives. Internists are doctors who specialize in internal medicine. Internists are experts at managing patients with indistinguishable or multi-system disease procedures. Internists provide care to both hospitalized and ambulatory patients, as well as teaching and research. Cardiology, cancer, endocrinology, infectious diseases, allergy immunology, nephrology, and rheumatology are some of the subspecialties in internal medicine.

Nutraceuticals are products that are both nutritional and medicinal in nature. A nutraceutical product is a substance that has physiological benefits or provides protection against chronic disease. Nutraceuticals can be used to promote health, slow the ageing process, prevent chronic diseases, extend life, and maintain the structure and function of the body. Nutraceuticals have recently gained popularity due to their potential nutritional, safety, and therapeutic benefits. Recent research has shown that these compounds have the potential to cause a variety of problems. Nutraceuticals can help people live longer lives by improving their health, slowing the ageing process, preventing chronic diseases, and supporting the structure and function of the body. They are also used to prevent and treat mental illnesses and problems. Nutraceuticals, which are dietary supplements, not only supplement the diet but also improve health and disease prevention.

Biochemists have long been fascinated by the chemical composition of animal food. Nutritional biochemistry is one of the academic foundations of nutritional sciences, a discipline that studies the function and influence of nutrients and other food components on mammalian physiology, health, and behaviour. Nutritional biochemistry is the core knowledge, concepts, and methodology relating to the chemical properties of nutrients and other dietary elements, as well as their biochemical, metabolic, physiological, and epigenetic roles. A major focus of nutritional biochemistry research is the scientific determination of optimal dietary intakes for each nutrient and food component throughout the life cycle. Nutritional biochemistry, for example, is founded on analytical methodologies that enable the purification of individual nutrients and the determination of their structures, as well as traditional biochemical strategies that identify metabolic pathways and demonstrate the role of dietary components in metabolism and gene expression regulation.

Nutrition is a basic human need as well as a requirement for living a long and healthy life. Beginning at a young age, a healthy diet is required for growth, development, and active living. Nutrition is the science of all the different components that make up food, as well as how to get enough nutrition. The typical nutritional needs of different groups of people are established and are based on measurable variables such as age, gender, height, weight, level of activity, and growth rate. Healthy lifestyle choices, such as eating a well-balanced diet and exercising regularly, help to lower the risk of noncommunicable diseases and improve physical and mental capacity as people age. The proportion of the world's population aged 60 and up is expected to nearly double between 2015 and 2050, from 12 to 22 percent. A deeper understanding of the interplay between nutrition and ageing is required to unravel the mechanisms responsible for the positive/negative impacts and to discover diet components that promote the quality of life in old age and contribute to the prevention of late-life disabilities.

A person's nutrient intake is consistently lower than the recommended need, resulting in nutritional deficiencies. On its own, nutritional deficiency is a risk factor for death. Despite the clinical importance of this condition, its prevalence in primary care is underreported. Nutritional deficiency has a wide range of consequences, including delayed wound healing and muscular degeneration, as well as decreased immune function. Malnourished patients have more consultations and prescriptions, longer hospital stays, a lower quality of life, and, most importantly, a higher risk of death.
A lack of nutrients caused by a poor diet, poor digestion, and/or malabsorption. Nutritional problems are a significant and underappreciated complication of many chronic diseases. Nutritional disorders can occur as a result of a combination of decreased food intake and metabolic imbalances, which have been linked to delayed recovery as well as increased morbidity and mortality. Nutritional disorders include a wide range of issues, such as general malnutrition, obesity-related overnutrition, eating disorders, and diseases in which nutrition plays a role in pathogenesis. Undernutrition and obesity are both major public health concerns around the world.

Food Science is the science and technology that is applied to the manufacture, production, processing, product creation, packaging, preparation, evaluation, distribution, use, and safety of food products. Food science is the study of what happens to food between the time it leaves the farm, field, or water and the time it is purchased by the customer. Food scientists work in a variety of fields such as food processing, food preservation, product development, and so on.

Nutritional problems are classified into two types: those caused by insufficient intake in relation to nutritional needs, and those caused by an excessive and unbalanced intake of food or a specific dietary component. One of the primary goals of nutrition education should be to provide people in rural and urban areas with the knowledge, skills, and motivation they need to obtain and consume healthy diets. Such education should cover improved family food supplies as well as more effective use of available food and economic resources in order to provide nutritious diets and better care for the most disadvantaged groups. Nutritional education motivates people to eat healthily and exercise on a regular basis. It refers to any combination of educational approaches and environmental supports aimed at encouraging the adoption of healthy eating habits and other food and nutrition-related behaviours.

Probiotics are live microorganisms (specifically bacteria and yeast) that have health benefits when consumed in the proper amounts. Probiotics are available as dietary supplements, but some are also found in fermented foods. In this area of nutrition, studies are being conducted to determine which probiotic strains are prevalent in various foods and which ones provide health benefits. Probiotics are "good" bacteria — or live cultures — that are similar to those found naturally in your stomach. By changing or repopulating intestinal bacteria, these active cultures help to regulate gut flora. This functional component has the potential to boost immunity as well as overall health, especially gut health.
A prebiotic is a food that has been purposefully fermented to cause specific changes in the gastrointestinal microbiota, both in composition and activity, in order to improve the host's well-being and health. Prebiotics are a class of carbohydrates that are poorly digested, such as specific fibres and resistant starches, but the most well-known prebiotics are non-digestible oligosaccharides. Prebiotics may have a number of health benefits in the digestive tract. However, the majority of the health benefits of prebiotics are indirect, i.e., they are mediated by intestinal bacteria, and thus are less well-proven. Incorporating health-promoting functional foods into your diet, such as those containing both prebiotics and probiotics, will assist you in becoming healthier.

"The science of nutrition applied to the human being in health and disease," according to the definition of dietetics. The dietitian profession has evolved significantly over the last 50 years, and the dietitian is now recognised as an expert in the planning and evaluation of nutritional treatment. Dietitians are the only health professionals who are trained to assess, diagnose, and treat diet and nutrition problems. They play an important role in improving the health of others, both individually and societally. Dietitians use the most recent research on diet, health, and disease to provide practical advice that helps people improve their health. Important dietary deficiencies, such as iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn), are a major public health concern that affects over 2 billion people worldwide, resulting in malnutrition syndromes. Medical and dietetic professionals must broaden their understanding of safety and therapeutic efficacy, as well as stay informed, in this rapidly expanding field of practise.

Malnutrition is a condition that occurs when the body does not have enough vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to keep its tissues and organs healthy. Malnutrition affects people who are either undernourished or overnourished. A number of tests have been developed to address this issue on a more subjective level in order to determine the physiologic and functional consequences of malnutrition and to assess the effects of nutritional supplementation. In health care, registered dietitian nutritionists are working hard to improve the speed and accuracy of malnutrition diagnosis and nutrition interventions. Malnutrition is a medical condition marked by an unbalanced diet. It could be a sign of malnutrition or overnutrition. Undernutrition occurs when vital nutrients are not consumed in sufficient quantities or when they are eliminated faster than they can be supplied.

Around the end of 2019, a new coronavirus (COVID-19) emerged on the global stage, primarily affecting the respiratory system and causing pneumonia and multi-organ failure. Although it starts with common symptoms like shortness of breath and fever, it is fatal in about 2–3 percent of cases. Consuming high-quality foods is always a good idea, but it's especially important during the COVID-19 outbreak. Nutrition is essential for maintaining a healthy immune system and preventing infection. If someone contracts COVID-19, it's critical that they consume enough of these healthy calories to avoid unintentional weight loss. A nutritious, mineral- and vitamin-rich diet helps to ensure an adequate number of immune cells and antibodies, which are essential when the body mounts an infection response.
