Infographic: Promoting Health and Well-being in Healthy People 2030

A new report published in the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice, Promoting Health and Well-being in Healthy People 2030,” describes the vision of Healthy People 2030 and outlines health promotion, which has been a cornerstone of the Healthy People initiative since its inception in 1979. The focus of Healthy People 2030, however, expands beyond health promotion to the broader purpose of promoting “health and well-being.” Authors Nico Pronk, Dushanka Kleinman, and colleagues explain that the process that has been called health promotion no longer focuses on health alone, but now leads to health and well-being for individuals in addition to society as a whole. The terms “health” and “well-being” describe separate but related states; health influences well-being and, conversely, well-being affects health. The World Health Organization identifies 3 key elements for health promotion: good governance for health; health literacy; and healthy cities. Adding the concept of well-being to this definition emphasizes that promotion of health and well-being takes place across different environments and stakeholders.
