Value Description
Health is the general condition of a person in all aspects. It is also a level of functional and/or metabolic efficiency of an organism, often implicitly human. At the time of the creation of the World Health Organization (WHO), in 1948, health was defined as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Only a handful of publications have focused specifically on the definition of health and its evolution in the first 6 decades. Some of them highlight its lack of operational value and the problem created by use of the word complete. Others declare the definition, which has not been modified since 1948, simply a bad one.
