Abstract

An important part of community health work is testing people who seem healthy and have no complaints, to find out if they have risk factors for disease, or are suffering from early subclinical disease. Measuring the height of a woman attending antenatal clinic is an example of testing for a risk factor. Weighing a child at an MCH clinic is an example of detecting early disease.
