What is a healthy life?

Contact us if you would like to help in any way

A healthy life involves the absence of illness – and living as healthily as possible for those of us with diseases.
It also concerns physical, psychological and social well-being.

How you can help

  • eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, avoiding tobacco and drugs and getting enough rest.
  • being aware of public health advice on how to reduce the risk of ill-health
  • taking action to follow public health advice
  • helping to keep your workplace healthy
  • being a good member of your community ie caring for others

How policymakers can help

  • Access to safe and affordable universal healthcare.
    This needs to include a good public health system: prevention is better than cure.
    This also needs access to safe medicines.
  • Clean water and sanitation for all.
  • Good education for all, including health literacy
  • A healthy environment – free from pollution
  • Minimising human contributions to global warning and climate change
  • Protection from extremes of climate … including floods and droughts
