Bend – the body Mend – the senses End – the mind Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Education as health Healthcare as education The health of society is intimately linked with the educational level of the people 1, 2 The educational experience is reflected, not only in the physical health, but the emotional and psychological health 2 Education reflects in adult behaviour, impacting on health 3 Healthcare education in school can positively affect adult health 4 These correlations are critical when we look at the role values education can make to societal health
Health care as social service Social needs determine health care
You have no reason to feel proud when you are able to help another, for your skill or wealth or strength or courage or official position that gave you the chance to serve was the gift of God, whether you recognize it or not. You are only offering this God's gift to another God's gift, namely the poor, the illiterate, the weak, the diseased, the grieving, the broken-hearted, who seek your help.Baba Health Care & Social Service are simply God gifting God back to God
Education as social conscience Society as the educational field Health and environmental education seek to address the living conditions and lifestyle choices that lead to health and environmental problems by motivating and teaching students how to participate in the reconstruction of themselves and society in accordance with ecological values and the democratic values of social and economic justice.
