Health promotion by definition includes: health enhancement, health protection, disease prevention, health restoration/recovery, care, and support. Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. It moves beyond a focus on individual behaviour towards a wide range of social and environmental interventions. (WHO, 2010 ). This course introduces the learner to the concepts of health promotion, discusses the determinants of health, health inequities and develops a beginning knowledge of normal growth and development.
