Social well-being means that there is a social fabric that enables people to live healthy, productive, safe and respected lives. It strengthens people's assets to respond to opportunities and risks, and minimize vulnerability.
The social-ecological approach is rooted in public health. We use it to understand and address the web of factors influencing health, social problems, and related human rights issues, and to advance social well-being.
