A process through which you gain greater control over the decisions affecting your life and health. We should feel empowered, so we take responsibility for our health, lifestyle choices and follow a healthy lifestyle. Those of us who are empowered and engaged in our own self-care tend to be healthier and have better health outcomes!
The aim in empowering health is to help us develop self-awareness, self-care and promote the understanding that we can be equal partners in our own healthcare decisions and lifestyle choices. In a way, health empowerment puts the individual at the heart of health services so that we are able to get the maximum benefits from it.
