Health Promotion

The World Health Organization defines "health promotion" as the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. Within the framework of the Israel National Program for Quality Indicators in Community Healthcare, two topics are measured:

Smoking status and its’ documentation in the medical record

Periodic documentation of weight and height measurements as well as the prevalence rates of underweight, overweight and obesity in adults, according to body mass index (BMI).
