Characterizing wellbeing advancement

The most notable meaning of wellbeing advancement is the Ottawa Charter (1986) of the World Health Organization:

Wellbeing advancement is the way toward empowering individuals to build control and improve their wellbeing (its full definition is given on the WHO site).

This definition was marginally reconsidered in 2005, in the WHO's Bangkok Charter for Health Promotion in the Globalized World:

Wellbeing advancement is the way toward empowering individuals to build power over their wellbeing and its determinants, and in this manner improve their wellbeing.

The WHO has delivered seven agreement reports on wellbeing advancement, the most recent being in Nairobi in 2009. For more data on these, visit Milestones in Health Promotion and the seventh Global Conference on Health Promotion.

Hazard centers around conduct and solid ways of life

Accentuation on wellbeing instruction - evolving information, mentalities and aptitudes

Spotlights on moral duty

Treats individuals in segregation of their condition

Social model of wellbeing (since 1970s):

Addresses expansive determinants of wellbeing

It incorporates between territorial participation

Attempts to lessen social variations

Enable people and networks

Serves to empower access to medicinal services

Environmental model of wellbeing (since the late 1970s):

Acknowledges the complementary connection between wellbeing related practices and the conditions wherein individuals live, work and play (conduct doesn't happen in the void)

Thinks about that the earth is comprised of different sub-frameworks - miniaturized scale, meso, exo and full scale

Underlines connections and conditions between these sub-frameworks

Utilizing a common structure for change at the individual and ecological levels is far reaching and multidimensional
