Abstract

Health education is an integral part of all maternal and child health activities. When the M.C.H. worker tells a pregnant woman what to eat, or gives advice on immunisation or works in liaison with the community development worker, she is in fact carrying out health education in one form or another. An educational approach to maternal and child health is particularly necessary in nutrition, child-rearing practice, environmental sanitation and personal hygiene.
