Types of health and how they relate to the SDGs

When it comes to health, most of us only think about physical health and diseases or illnesses. However, this infographic on types of health explains why the concept is much broader and also encompasses mental and social health.

Out of all the definitions regarding health, the one from World Health Organization (WHO) is the most accurate. In the introduction of their constitution which was approved at the International Health Conference, held in New York in 1946, they define health as being “a state of complete well-being, physical, mental and social.” The definition has not changed since then.
