Health education programs help empower individuals and communities to live healthier lives by improving their physical, mental, emotional, and social health by increasing their knowledge and influencing their attitudes about caring for their well-being. When it comes to building a healthy nation and community, the importance of health education cannot be overlooked. Community health workers collaborate with all stakeholders in a community – from its citizens to its government, education, and medical officials – to improve health and wellness and ensure equal access to healthcare.
