Health is the level of functional or metabolic efficiency of a living organism. In humans,
it is the general condition of a person's mind and body, usually meaning to be free from illness,
injury or pain (as in good health or healthy). The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in 1946 as a state of complete physical,
mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
It is increasingly recognized that health is maintained and improved not only through the advancement and application of health science, but also through the
efforts and intelligent lifestyle choices of the individual and society. According to the World Health Organization, the main determinants of health include the social
and economic environment, the physical environment,
and the person's individual characteristics and behaviors.
Thus, Health is a major component to assess Quality of Life of an individual and the society at large. Maintaining good health is a continuous process.
Physical and mental wellbeing has a direct bearing on human development, disability, performance, longitivity, social adaptability, and ability to face challenges in life.
