The Promotion and Development of Community Health for Personal Health: Theories and Applications
Improving people's health by providing practical, fundamental health care was emphasized in the “Health City Project” of the World Health Organization (WHO). Through this, citizens can achieve good health. Moreover, health care scholars and practitioners around the world were engaged in reaching this goal. The term “Community Health Construction” describes the integration of civil power and the existing foundational health care system to construct a basic health care network with many functions. Further, it will inspire people to employ self-determination, autonomy, and self-help. Hence, the top-down policy of community development will motivate people to discover, analyze, and solve the issues with community health. Thus, we will build healthy communities with healthy citizens.
The “Health City Project” is based on a community development model that shows the action of community health promotion. It means that people collaborating will excite professional specialists and citizens to solve community health issues together by conjoining community resources. In the past, health information was not made accessible to citizens by experts and scholars in health care. However, the provided health information could not satisfy people's real demands. Therefore, the dimension of health care should construct the community health norm, a healthy environment, and methods of performing autonomic, practical, healthy behavior and sustainable development, etc. Indeed, community health construction is the core objective of sustainability operations. This consensus will be achieved by individuals who participate in related activities continuously. In general, this topic will focus on community health to promote people’s health and development. It involves theories, practices, methods, and applications.
