A ghetto is an environment of the low quality of life, economically depressed, socially backward dirty and unhygienic. The state of a ghetto is not favorable for the survival of the people living there. lack of basic amenities like good drainage and clean water makes a ghetto totally vulnerable to infections and those staying there are prone to be infected with diseases and sicknesses.

Some of the sicknesses common to the ghetto are malaria fever, typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery and so many other. If not treated properly children in this environment may die of these diseases. This can be avoided if we take care of the causes.

One thing that can help those living in this environment to avoid sicknesses and untimely death is proper hygiene. Hygiene is the conditions and practices that promote health, it also preserves health. If you find yourself in a ghetto environment, you should take proper hygiene as very important.

Proper hygiene starts from cleanliness. To avoid malaria for example you must make sure you clean out all the unclean water in your environment, weed the grass, clear all dirt so mosquitoes will not have a place to breed in your house. If you can’t take care of the whole environment due to some reasons, get insecticides that will kill the mosquitoes to prevent malaria in your family.

Hygiene has to do with the food we eat also. Protect your food very well; don’t allow bacteria get into your food. Ghetto is an environment that is highly polluted. To prevent typhoid infection, you have to keep your food properly safe and also your water too as the bacteria spread more through this means.

Everyone should know that your health is very important and you can improve your health through proper hygiene no matter the environment you find yourself.
