Concept of Health


Definition: The WHO has given the widely accepted definition of health, which is as follows: “ Health is a state of complete physical, mental & social well-being and not merely an absence of disease or infirmity,  so that each citizen can lead a socially and occasionally productive life.”

New philosophy of health:

  1. Health is a fundamental human right.
  2. Health is the essence of productive life and not the result of ever increasing expenditure on medical care.
  3. Health is intersectoral.
  4. Health is an integral part of development.
  5. Health is central to the concept of quality of life.
  6. Health involves individuals, state and international responsibility.
  7. Health and its maintenance is a major social investment.
  8. Health is world-wide social goal.
