Background of Research Seminar:
The movement towards Healthy Society should include:
  • Expansion of citizens’ empowerment and choices – their rights and general health literacy

  • To recognise the increasing presence of health in the market place and ensure consumer safety

  • To address the problems of health inequalities

  • To recognise the that boundaries between different components of health care delivery system such as health promotion, disease prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, are becoming increasingly blurred and needs greater integration

We need to reflect critically whether we have developed research along those areas.
