What is Health Promotion?
Health promotion is essentially about helping people make informed decisions about their health and change their behaviors for the better. It is about being-proactive and taking charge over one own’s life and to prevent, or manage, illnesses and health problems before they arise or before they become serious.
Health promotion is not restricted to a hospital setting, but is often ‘done’ at all levels in society: from the household to the village, to the municipal and national stage. Health promotion may involve informational support, but also include commercial marketing strategies, such as plain tobacco packaging to discourage smoking or introducing fees for not wearing a seatbelt in the car.
In a hospital setting, health promotion services often include annual health screening which help with early detection and prevention of potential health problems and doctor consultation about how to ensure a healthier life.
At Khema’s Health Promotion Center, we offer a variety of comprehensive and affordable health screening packages to all our current and prospective clients. These packages have been carefully put together to include international recommend screening for women and men of different ages and walks of life.
Khema’s doctors and experts recommend annual health exams and tests as they can help detect issues before they have a negative impact on your health and life. Health exams can help with early detection of problems, when your chances for treatment and cure are better. With the right health services, screenings, and treatments, you can make sure that you are in charge of your life and that you are taking action, which greatly increases your chances for a longer and healthier life.
