In this subject, students will examine the multi-dimensional and dynamic nature of health and explore the factors that determine health status and influence meanings of health. The notion of health as a social construct will be investigated by examining international frameworks of health promotion. Young people will act as a case study population for investigation, and healthy eating habits and physical activity will act as study foci. Through the design of a health promotion strategy that responds to the health needs of young people, this subject offers students the opportunity to apply both a settings and population approach to health promotion, and incorporate the principles of social justice.
