Manish Saxena and Dr. Rajendra Prasad Sharma
Human being is only distinguish with animals by their knowledge and critical thinking. In today’s era the updating knowledge is essential to keep for survival in this modern world. In health aspect current era is technological and scientific era on the basis of high technology knowledge. It is essential for discovering the new disease, emerging and reemerging disease. As per my view in current environment reemerging of diseases are increasing such as Malaria, Yellow fever, Chikungunya. So people suffered with these disease condition four to five decades before and new generation is unknown to these disease condition. As per statically surveys chikungunya came first time in India by 1965 and it reemerge again in 2014-15 in south costal in India. People did not have knowledge about this disease condition even medical teams also were not aware about these condition. Because it was eliminated from there syllabus. So that assessment of knowledge is primary stage to understand there level of knowledge regarding disease condition for further health care needs and services to be planned.
