First of all let us define the basic meaning of the term health. One of the definitions is that it is the level of functional efficiency of a living organism. According to the WHO (World Health Organization) definition given in 1947, health is “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.

Through observation and meticulous study of various stages of health, mankind discovered that there was a number of ways in which health could be affected and an equal number of ways in which that could be remedied. That was the birth of medicine, a science or a practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. It encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness. Since that time medicine has ever evolved and the administrative apparatus followed.

Today, when it comes to health there are many important issues to consider such as personal health, diet and exercise, nutrition and the importance of vaccination or dental care. Other significant matters are public health and the issues that accompany it or the branches of science concerned with health in general and the health care organization policies.

The documentaries and video materials in this category contain all of the relevant information on the issues of health, both mental and physical, health care systems and the evolution of the health related branches of science.
