Resource Properties

Abstract:

This 9:39 YouTube video, with Nepali audio and English subtitles, educates people about preventive health care for early detection of disease. It describes specific symptoms that can indicate changes in the body, and clarifies that visiting a doctor can help prevent illness or injury, and recommend treatment. It outlines preventive services such as screening tests, regular check-ups, immunizations, and other health education information. The video discusses three important preventive services: wellness visits to provide a medical history, receive a physical exam, and change unhealthy habits; screening tests for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, osteoporosis, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and cervical cancer; and vaccines. This video is from Heartland Alliance's Bhutanese Video Intervention, Education, and Wellness Project (B-VIEW).
