WHO also defined quality of life as a person’s perception of their position in life regarding their cultures and values systems in which they live and in relation to their goals, expectations, standards and concerns. Sirgy et al (2004) also defined quality of life as the “The product of the interplay among social, health, economic and environmental conditions which affect human and social development.
