Health Promotion and Health Education:
Health promotion positively influences the health behavior of individuals and communities as well as the living and working conditions that influence health. Health promotion improves the health status of individuals, families, communities, states, and the nation.
Health education is any combination of learning experiences designed to help individuals and communities improve their health, by increasing knowledge or influencing attitudes. It provides an opportunity to acquire information and the skills needed to make quality health decisions.
