Health Education

Before discussing health education, it is necessary to understand what health
itself means. It is a highly subjective concept. The meaning of Good health is different for
different people, and the meaning may vary according to individual and community
expectations and context. Some people consider themselves healthy if they are free
from disease or disability. However, people who have a disease or disability may also
see themselves as a healthy person if they are able to manage their condition so that it
does not affect their quality of life.
WHO defined health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being
and not the mere absence of disease or infirmity?”
Health basically covers three areas:
Physical health – Physical Health refers to anatomical integrity and physiological
functioning of the body. A person is called physically healthy if All the body parts
are there. All body parts are in their natural place and position. None of the parts has
any pathology. All parts are doing their physiological functions properly. And all parts
working with each other harmoniously.
Mental health – The ability of an individual to learn and think clearly is called Mental
Health. A person is able to handle day-to-day events and obstacles if having good
mental health; he can work towards important goals, and effectively function in society.
Social health – it is the ability of an individual to make and maintain acceptable interactions
with other people. For example to feel sad when somebody close to you passes away.
The absence of health has denoted the terms disease, illness, and sickness, which
usually mean the same thing though socially
