Healthy Settings

Healthy setting is a place or social context in which people engage in daily activities in which environmental, organizational and personal factors interact to affect health and well-being. Action to promote health through different settings can take many different forms, often through some form of organizational development, including change to the physical environment, to the organizational structure, administration and management. Settings can also be used to promote health by reaching people who work in them, or using them to gain access to services, and through the interaction of different settings with the wider community.
