What is Health Promotion?
Health promotion is a discipline that seeks to improve the health of individuals and communities through education, behavioral change, and environmental improvement. Health promotion draws from a number of complementary disciplines, such as psychology, sociology, the biological and clinical sciences, and business (marketing and management) to help individuals and communities change their behaviors and improve their environments. In short, health promotion is "the process of enabling people to increase control over and to improve their health."
