Prevention and health promotion


To be effective, health promotion and disease prevention recommendations require participation and collaboration at different levels of the social community: individual, collective and institutional. Health is part of everyday life, that is, in the workplace, in schools, and communities. 

The interventions must therefore also consider a change in the contexts, both regulatory (such as incentives and awareness) and structural (such as the organization of adequate spaces) to activate the changes that contribute to the well-being of citizens.
