Distend Concept of Health

Gautam Kr Ghosh | Arpita De [2]


Abstract: The sense of health has advanced over time. In 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO) defined health linking fitness to well-being, in phases of physical, mental, and social well-being, and no longer the absence of disease and infirmity. The WHO definition has been criticized as-(i) static, (ii) morbidity's changing styles and (iii) definition's operationalization. This paper attempts to understand the enlarged concept of health through use of those words, objective and subjective related inter-objective and intersubjective. The understanding of health has changed substantially with reconceptualizing health on a continuum rather than as a static state, and adding existential health to physical, mental, and social well-being. Enlarged concept of disease and the binomial health-disease can be better understood under the distend concept of health.


Keywords: health, definition, WHO, expanded concept
