It has been a long time since health has been “professionalised” by society. When you are sick, you need to go to a doctor and follow the doctor’s instructions to take the medicine without knowing the effects of them. The terms written on the health report are jargons that could hardly be understood. It seems that the public could not become healthy unless they have consulted specialists or healthcare professionals. As the saying goes, “You will recover if you listen to the doctor,” the health of yourself seems to have been outsourced to others.
HIA believes that everyone can become healthy, and individual participation is very important in achieving a healthy state. Therefore, we hope to achieve health localisation and let the public get to know more about health information and learn ways to become healthy. Through health information dissemination and encouraging the public to have regular physical check-ups, we hope the public can achieve health from a more equitable starting point.
