WELL Community Building a Culture of Health and Establishing Social Ties Course


Available Instantly Expert Content

Overview

The WELL Community concept is designed to provide a framework for a healthy community. It targets to influence and empower communities to obtain better health using a synergic approach.

It is no secret that good health is an essential component of happiness for anyone. We also know that a variety of factors, including social, economic, educational, and psychological factors, influence how healthy people become.
Knowing the complexities of human health, we cannot isolate these factors from each other. They work together in conjunction with each other to either promote or impede health.

The majority of factors influencing human life are community-based and directly related to the environment in which we live. Thus, factors such as the quality and availability of social networks, the provision of essential services, and access to education, housing, and employment all have a direct impact on health.
