Please go through the sample answer as well as another student’s answer.

All Every country’s (All = plural; country = singular; every = singular) population‘s health plays a significant role in their its (Singular-plural mistake) countries (the country’s) overall development. If people of a country are unhealthy, it would effect (Learn the difference between Affect and Effect.) affect the wealth of that country. I agree with this given statement because health education and preventive measures are an amazing way to keep people healthy, instead of spending the budget amount on their (who is their?) health treatment. (57 words.)

Firstly, cost of medical care is too high both for individuals and governments. Sometimes, the majority of population are is poor and the government budgets are government’s budget is in deficit. Providing health to people Maintaining public health using preventive measures (expression of the idea is weak) is very extremely cost-effective because people would be aware of risks and causes of health diseases. Hence, they use methods in prevention of diseases. It helps people not only in making body aseptic but also it reduce in reducing medical bills (Rules of parallelism violated). For instance, in the polio eradication programme the government has been using various method methods of health education such as by broadcasting advertisements at on television, radio, (Oxford comma) and printing in newspapers about the polio vaccination date so that people should go to vaccination booths with their child. It eradicates the polio disease at big to a large extent in the India. (121 words.)

For example, the Delhi government has been making building more parks with gym machines in residential areas. So, so that people can go anytime in these parks for exercises and it also help helps people to stay fit in their daily life(104 words.)

To conclude, benefits of health awareness and preventative measures prior to spreading diseases in susceptible areas is outweigh any post-facto measures. The government should come in front for more health related education programmes and provide more facilities in rural areas so that the people of backward areas also aware of health education. (Rewrite this conclusion using if ….. then …… clause.) (48 words.)
