The study of Health and Human Development is based on the premise that health and human development needs to be promoted at an individual level, and within group and community settings at national and international levels, to maximise global development potential. This underpins the structure of the four units of Health and Human Development. The study looks at physical, social, intellectual and emotional aspects of health and development beginning with the individual and progressing to the family, community and an international perspective. It acknowledges that health and human development is determined by lifestyle, environment, heredity and access to health services. The study also promotes the understanding that nutrition plays a major role in influencing both health status and human development Health and Human Development at the VCE level focuses on factors that promote wellbeing of individuals, family and communities.
