Health is to be created where people live, love, learn, work and play.
A state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community (WHO 2001a,p.1)
Creation of individual, social and environmental conditions that enable optimal psychological and psycho-physiological development.
