“Raising Awareness among the masses is a social process of improving the intelligence of the society to cope with a natural disasters or epidemics.
Awareness acts as a precautionary measure to tackle with the social issues. However, this awareness can only be effective if we are educated enough to utilize this intelligence”. This was observed by Chairman NCHD Col ® Dr. Amirullah Marwat while talking to media person on the eve of International Literacy Day.

As per article 25-A and 37-B of the constitution, the state is bound to irradiate illiteracy in the country and ensure provision of education to all the children aged 5-16 years”.
