The World Health Organization describes health education objectives as follows:
  1. Ensuring that health is accepted as a valuable matter in society
  2. Equipping people with necessary knowledge and skills and influencing their tendencies, so that they can solve their own health problems
  3. Providing necessary conditions for growth of health services
Generally, health education should lead to health deliberation and provide the basis for dynamic and healthy responses. Eventually, it creates such a tendency towards different vital functions that allows a person to eliminate or minimize a significant number of deleterious hazards.
