What is health?

“A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”

- World Health Organisation (WHO) 

Health - A concept in change

The general understanding of health and the meaning of health have changed dramatically over the last century. Until a few decades ago, people were considered helpless victims of diseases and doctors as omniscient healers. However, it has since been recognized that this understanding of health neither helps physicians in their work nor supports people on their way to a healthier life.

Today we know that health is affected by a complex set of factors. The goal of this new understanding of health is to create a holistic approach to promoting human well-being.
