In keeping with the biomedical perspective, early definitions of health focuse on the theme of the body’s ability to function. Health was see as a state of normal function that could be disrupt from time to time by disease. An example of such a definition of health is. A state characterize by anatomic, physiologic, and psychological integrity. Ability to perform personally valued family, work, and community roles. To deal with physical, biological, psychological, and social stress”.
Then in 1948, in a radical departure from previous definitions. The World Health Organization (WHO) proposed a definition that aim high. Linking health to well-being, in terms of “physical, mental. And social well-being, and not mere the absence of disease and infirmity”. Although this definition was welcome by some as being innovative. It was also criticize as being vague, excessively broad and is not construe as measurable. For a long time, it was set aside as an impractical ideal and most discussions of health return to the practicality of the biomedical model.
The same shift happened in definitions of health. Again, the WHO play a leading role when it foster the development of the health promotion movement in the 1980s. This brought in a new conception of health, not as a state, but in dynamic terms of resiliency, in other words, as “a resource for living”. In 1984 WHO revised the definition of health define. The extent to which an individual or group is able to realize aspirations and satisfy needs. To change or cope with the environment.
Health is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. It is a positive concept, emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities”. Thus, health referred to the ability to maintain homeostasis and recover from insults. Mental, intellectual, emotional and social health referred to a person’s ability. To handle stress, to acquire skills, to maintain relationships, all of which form resources for resiliency and independent living. This opens up many possibilities for health to be taught, strengthen and learn.
