"LIFE COURSE APPROACH TO FAMILY HEALTH"

 

The life course approach aims at increasing the effectiveness of intervention throughout a person’s life. It focuses on a healthy start to life and targets the needs of people at critical periods throughout their lifetime. It promotes timely investments with a high rate of return for public health and the economy by addressing the causes, not the consequences, of ill health.

A life course approach builds on the interaction of multiple promotive, protective and risk factors throughout people’s lives. It adopts a temporal and societal perspective on the health of individuals and generations, including intergenerational determinants of health. This year’s theme recognizes the multifaceted roles of public health. It aims to highlight the need for public health to improve health and well-being, promote social justice, and contribute to sustainable development and inclusive growth and wealth in all sectors and countries.
