Health geography provide a spatial understanding of people’s health, the distribution prevalence and occurrence of diseases of in an area and the environment‘s effect on health and diseases. This study is considered a sub-discipline of human geography; however, it requires an understanding of other fields like epidemiology and climatology. Health care is an expression of concern for fellow human beings. It is defined as a “multitude of services rendered to individuals, families or communities by the agents of the health services or professions, for the purpose of promoting, maintaining, monitoring or restoring health”. In many countries health care is completely or largely a governmental function. The main focus of health care is ‘serve’ or ‘service to others’. Therefore, it is so pathetic to left alone to health practitioner rather it would be concerned of social scientists in general and health geographers in particular.
