Introduction to Health

The general condition of a person I all aspect is called as health. It is also the metabolic efficiency or functional level of an organism, often essentially human. In1948, during the creation of the World Health Organization [who], health was defined as “a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. In the first six decades of evolution of health only a few publications had concentrated particularly on the definition of health. During the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion in 1986 the WHO said that health is “a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.” Classification systems such as the WHO Family of International Classifications [WHO-FIC], which is composed of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health [ICF] and the International Classification of Diseases [ICD] also define health. Overall health is achieved through a combination of physical, mental, and social well-being, which, together is commonly referred to as the Health Triangle.

The process of implementing healthy measures is not at all an expensive act. But it is too complicated as far as individuals are concerned. To make people aware about these safety measures and various programs are not an easy job. For the success of any such programs the cooperation of people is an inevitable factor. Getting support from the public for all such programs are very difficult. If the public have full confidence on these programs they will definitely support all ventures organizing by the authorities. To introduce their programs successfully the authorities must be able to win the confidence from the public. If public support is available other obstacles can be sorted out very easily. In this way very good health programs can be implemented so safely.
