Abstract: Ideally, people should be able to embrace health-promoting behaviors and practices and be appropriately informed if they must make life-altering health decisions. Health-related choices that people make daily are critical for recognizing structural shortcomings, targeting particular health-promoting policy interventions, and mapping out people-centered institutional improvements. In Pakistan, along with communicable diseases that continue to represent a significant threat to public health, the burden of non-communicable diseases is also escalating. Addressing these health challenges and targeting structural improvements calls for understanding of the health culture prevailing in communities.
