About this Unit
An individual's personal characteristics and their family, social and community environments have complex interrelationship with their health and health behaviours. The challenge for health professionals is to understand this complexity and encourage the practice of health promotion within a primary health care framework so enabling people to achieve a sense of power and control over their lives. The unit explores the health of individuals and communities in the context of health promotion. Evidence-based health promotion strategies are examined using social health and ecological perspectives.
