Health, social construction, illness, responsibility, competente, health development


A constructive theoretical view of everyday topics (in this paper context, we mean health) allows us to spot on communication models and cultural features of important daily aspects. This paper holds health up as a model of knowledge inside cultural programme fields. By drawing on this theoretical and scientist communication context, the relationship between health and its development can be shown as a pattern of life, taking always into consideration social conditions.
