Definition of Healthcare:

Health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO). Healthcare is defined as the care of those who are in general or specialised hospitals and related ancillary facilities, hospice care, nursing homes, community residential care units for the elderly, centres for persons with intellectual and/or physical disability and those in receipt of care in their homes or other centres committed to healthcare.
