Mortality rate is the measure of number of deaths in general or due to a specific cause in a particular population, scaled to the size of that population per unit of time.
Mortality rate is typically expressed in units of deaths per 1,000 individuals per year. Thus, mortality rate of 9.5 (out of 1,000) in a population of 1,000 means 9.5 deaths per year in that entire population. It is different from the so-called "morbidity rate".

Nutrition education is a combination of education and strategies designed to facilitate the voluntary adoption of food choices and other food and nutrition related behaviour for the betterment and maintenance of the health condition of the individual.
Learning about healthy nutritional practices has several positive implications for an individual’s physical well being. School and secondary education universities should conduct programs designed to educate and encourage children and teenagers to make wise eating choices can help alleviate the prevalence of obesity.
Restrictive eating is extremely detrimental to a person’s health as a lack of nutrients and energy makes it impossible for normal bodily function. Without proper nutritional guidance, children are susceptible towards falling into long lasting poor eating habits that may lead to a number of health risks.

Infections is the process of the invasion and multiplication of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites that are not normally present within the body. An infection may cause no symptoms and be subclinical, or it may cause symptoms and be clinically apparent. An infection may remain localized, or it may spread through the blood or lymphatic vessels to become systemic.
Bacteria reproduce by splitting in two, while viruses replicate themselves inside host cells. Many bacterial infections can be treated successfully with antibiotics, but these are useless against viral infections.

Women’s healthcare is the important branch in healthcare, which is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the women’s health disorders or illness which may be physical or mental, or any disability that may affects women’s well-being.
Women's Health is a wide encompassing topic which covers just about everything affecting the health of women. From the emotional well-being of a woman to her physical and medical health and history, everything that relates to the health of a woman is included under this field of medicine. Health issues affecting women may also affect men, but there are a wide variety of female-specific medical issues.
Besides conditions such as menopause, ovarian and cervical cancer, and pregnancy, which are unique to women, other medical conditions play a large role in women’s health. Breast cancer and osteoporosis are thought of as women’s health concerns, although they can also occur in men. Heart disease may be a serious concern for both men and women, though risk factors and preventive strategies may differ between the sexes, and women may experience different symptoms of an impending heart attack than men.

Prevalence is the study of disease conditions that affect a group of individuals in a community at a same time in a statistical manner. The prevalence data can be used to study the effect of various disease conditions on a community and to know the disease conditions in a particular period of time.
“Prevalence” is the proportion of a population who have or had a specific characteristic in a given time period – in medicine, typically an illness, a condition, or a risk factor such as depression or smoking.
Prevalence is a statistical concept referring to the number of cases of a disease that are present in a particular population at a given time, whereas incidence refers to the number of new cases that develop in a given period of time.

Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. The time is known as teenage where they are prone to change in behaviour and thinking compared to their childhood. However, the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, during the preteen or "tween" years (ages 9 through 12).
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity; many adolescents and their peers face tough choices regarding schoolwork, sexuality, drugs, alcohol, and social life. Peer groups, romantic interests and external appearance tend to naturally increase in importance for some time during a teen's journey toward adulthood.

Addiction is a condition that results when a person ingests a substance (e.g., alcohol, cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that can be pleasurable but the continued use/act of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary life responsibilities, such as work, relationships, or health.
People with an addiction do not have control over what they are doing, taking or using. Their addiction may reach a point at which it is harmful. Addictions do not only include physical things we consume, such as drugs or alcohol, but may include virtually anything, such abstract things as gambling to seemingly harmless products, such as chocolate - in other words, addiction may refer to a substance dependence (e.g. drug addiction) or behavioral addiction (e.g. gambling addiction).
The word addiction is used in several different ways. One definition describes physical addiction. This is a biological state in which the body adapts to the presence of a drug so that drug no longer has the same effect, otherwise known as a tolerance. Another form of physical addiction is the phenomenon of overreaction by the brain to drugs (or to cues associated with the drugs).
However, most addictive behavior is not related to either physical tolerance or exposure to cues. People compulsively use drugs, gamble, or shop nearly always in reaction to being emotionally stressed, whether or not they have a physical addiction.
