Health Promotion

Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health(Ottawa Charter, 1986). It represents a comprehensive social and political process, which includes actions for improving the skills and ability of individuals to increase control over the determinants of health, and actions towards changing social, environmental and economic conditions to address their impact on public and individual health.
