The term “health conditions” refers to a person’s overall health, as well as health-related issues and situations. In this case, with particular reference to inmates who are confined within the prison’s four walls.

The term “health” can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Previously, health was defined as the absence of sickness or illness. The term “health” has taken on a new connotation in recent years. Health is a broad term that refers to a person’s overall well-being. Health is a prerequisite for survival since the healthier we are, the more effective we can be. Because health improves our efficacy, the saying “health is riches” comes to mind. A state of being physically and mentally well is defined as health.

Advanced Learner’s Dictionary by Oxford Health is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a condition of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not just the absence of sickness or infirmity.

It implies that the physical system and its organs are free of any diseases and deformities while remaining mentally healthy. However, a larger definition of health includes physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. If this definition is to be believed, I’m not sure how many people, especially in this part of the world, can be considered healthy.
