Description

Health promotion provides the process for increasing awareness of factors that impact on health and health enhancement strategies. It considers the impact of public policy on health and physical activity. Individual and population level interventions are assessed, planned and evaluated to promote health and physical activity. To reach a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, an individual or group needs to identify and realise aspirations, satisfy needs and change or cope with the environment. Health is thus viewed in this subject as a valuable resource for life and livelihood. Health promotion is considered not just the responsibility of the health sector, but as reaching beyond healthy lifestyles to optimise wellbeing for all. This subject enables students to learn behaviour change principles and strategies for effective implementation of healthy lifestyle goals and to promote physical activity.
