Health Services & Health Benefits 

"Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.” This means that health is a resource to support an individual's function in wider society, rather than an end in itself. A healthful lifestyle provides the means to lead a full life with meaning and purpose.
