Health services include all services dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of disease, or the promotion, maintenance and restoration of health. They include personal and non-personal health services.

Health services are the most visible functions of any health system, both to users and the general public. Service provision refers to the way inputs such as money, staff, equipment and drugs are combined to allow the delivery of health interventions.

Improving access, coverage and quality of services depends on these key resources being available; on the ways services are organized and managed, and on incentives influencing providers and users

Women have unique health issues. And some of the health issues that affect women differently. Unique issues include pregnancy, menopause, and conditions of the female organs. Women can have a healthy pregnancy by getting early and regular prenatal care. They should also get recommended breast cancer, cervical cancer, and bone density screenings. Complications of pregnancy are health problems that occur during pregnancy. They can involve the mother's health, the baby's health, or both. It is estimated that up to 40 percent of women will have a UTI at some time in their lives. Breast cancer is cancer that develops from breast tissue. Signs of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in breast shape. Certain factors increase your risk of ovarian cancer: Age Inherited gene mutation, Estrogen hormone replacement therapy.

Nutritional science investigates the metabolic and physiological responses of the body to diet. With advances in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, the study of Human nutrition is increasingly concerned with metabolism and metabolic pathways. Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents, and the age limit usually ranges from birth up to 18 years of age.  Nutrition is some of the most effective forms of development aid. Breastfeeding can reduce rates of malnutrition and death in children, and efforts to promote the practice increase rates.

Without doubt, medical technology is indispensable for people's health and better quality of life in some areas; and contributes billions of dollars to the economy. Total healthcare spending worldwide was $7.2 trillion in 2013, accounting for 10.6% of global GDP and forecast to grow at >5% annually to 20181. Increases in spend are being driven in large part by increases in life expectancy, leading to ageing populations.

Health economics is related to value, behavior efficiency & effectiveness in the production and consumption of both health and health care. Health economists study the functioning of health care systems & health-affecting behaviors such as drinking, smoking etc.  bThere are many sub-categories under health policies like National Healthcare policy, personal health care policy, Nursing Healthcare policy, pharmaceutical policy, and Environmental Health and public healthcare policies such as vaccination policy, tobacco control policy and breastfeeding promotion policy.

Oral and dental health is a very much important aspect of our life but usually is often not cared and valued. Mouth is a window for the health of our whole body. It can show signs from nutritional deficiencies to some general or major infections. Systemic diseases, those that affect the entire body, may first become apparent because of mouth lesions or other oral problems.
It is easy to practice a good oral health and hygiene by always brushing teeth twice a day with a good fluoride toothpaste, using floss or other interdental cleaner for cleaning between the teeth once a day, changing the toothbrush after every three or four months and by eating a good  balanced diet and limiting between-meal snacks. We should not forget to schedule a regular dental check-up to keep our smile, and ourselves, healthy.

Digital technologies are reinventing healthcare across the patient lifecycle, enabling a more personalised, timely and cost-effective treatment journey. The influx of smarter devices, mobile solutions and patient-centred technologies means industry trends are evolving, and by 2020 the healthcare continuum as we know it today, will be unrecognisable. Generally, digital healthcare is concerned about the development of interconnected health systems so as to improve the use of computational technologies, smart devices, computational analysis techniques and communication media to aid healthcare professionals and patients manage illnesses and health risks, as well as promote health and wellbeing

Digital healthcare is a multi-disciplinary domain which involves many stakeholders, including clinicians, researchers and scientists with a wide range of expertise in healthcare, engineering, social sciences, public health, health economics and management

The term health-care waste includes all the waste generated within health-care facilities, research centres and laboratories related to medical procedures. In addition, it includes the same types of waste originating from minor and scattered sources, including waste produced in the course of health care undertaken in the home (e.g. home dialysis, self-administration of insulin, recuperative care). Most waste generated in healthcare establishments can be treated as regular solid municipal waste. But a varying proportion of HCW requires special attention, including sharps (e.g. needles, razors, scalpels), pathological waste, other potentially infectious waste, pharmaceutical waste, biological waste, and hazardous chemical waste. Collectively, these wastes are known as “special healthcare waste”.

Medical tourism most often is for surgeries (cosmetic or otherwise) or similar treatments, though people also travel for dental tourism or fertility tourism. People with rare genetic disorders may travel to countries where the treatment is better understood. However, almost all types of health care are available, including psychiatry, alternative medicine, convalescent care, and even burial services.

Depending on the destination they choose, medical tourists may be subject to a number of risks, such as deep vein thrombosis from air travel or poor post-operative care.

The main impact of medical tourism is that it brings direct foreign exchange earnings and contributes greatly to government revenues. It offers employment and business opportunities to the local people. Medical tourism is an enormous source of foreign exchange for destination economies because foreign medical tourists bring in foreign currency to pay for different goods and services they receive during their medical journey. Medical tourism is an emerging global industry, with a range of key stakeholders with commercial interests including health care providers, insurance provision, website providers and conference and media services. Since medical tourism attracts the high-end tourists from developed and developing nations, it gives an economic boost to not only developed countries but also small or deprived regions, which otherwise are rich in traditional methods of health.
