A Gentle Celebration of Health

There are many reasons to appreciate health when we have it.  There are also many reasons why we should protect and/or improve our health, and try to gain a better understanding of it.

Do you know how advanced your health literacy might be?

The health of people has much to do with the health policies of the governments under which they live and work.  It relates partly to the educational tasks of health promotion, but also to the willingness of individuals to choose healthy ways of life.

There are many organisations involved in the areas of health promotion, health policy and health literacy.  You may be involved in one or more of them.  Why, then, do so many people live in ways that are detrimental to their health?
