At the outset, Dr Sushil pointed out that though health promotion is meant for entire population, if a specific group within a population is singled out as the recipient of health promotion interventions, it is because of a valid reason, such as epidemiological concerns or preferences in social policy viz., measures targeting vulnerable or disadvantaged groups. It explains the focus of many health promotion activities on children, women, refugees and workers in certain industries or occupations, he added. The awareness talk was followed by an interactive session where numerous queries were raised by elderly population regarding various myths and misconceptions about cardiovascular diseases. Dr Sushil listened to them very patiently and sensitised people to the best of his ability.
