Health Promotion


The three aspects to Health Promotion suggested by Tannahill (Downie 1996) are:

  • Prevention – reducing or avoiding the risk of diseases and ill health.
  • Positive Health Education – communication to enhance well-being and prevent ill-health through improving knowledge and attitudes.
  • Health Protection - safeguarding population health through legislative, financial or social measures.
