What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content
This paper develops your understanding of the social, cultural, economic, political and environmental factors that shape how health is thought about and practiced. Moving beyond a consideration of health as the 'absence of disease', the paper encourages you to think about health holistically. It provides a broad overview of key policies, frameworks and models of health and the conceptual tools necessary to assess their use in relation to different communities, populations, and individuals. Contemporary health issues linked to Te Ao Māori, the outdoors, obesity, disability and mental health will be explored. This is a foundation paper that begins to assist you in developing the skills and knowledge needed to enhance the health of people in communities.
