Everyone agrees it's important to be healthy. That's why so many of the decisions we make in our daily life are about good health. Our ability to be healthy is determined by many different factors. In this program we explore the determinants of health or influences on health through practical examples over different life stages in today's society. We explain how health can be determined by a range of individual, social, cultural, environmental and lifestyle factors that are dynamic and interrelated. We conclude by highlighting education and awareness as the greatest influences on our health and the decisions we make.
