For help with developing, managing and evaluating these interventions, health education practitioners can turn to several planning models that are based on health behaviour theories.   Like its counterpart, Macroeconomics in Context, the book is uniquely attuned to economic, social, and environmental realities. The “in Context” books offer affordability, accessible presentation, and engaging coverage of current policy issues from economic inequality and global climate change to taxes and globalization.

Previous research has examined men’s health in relation to women’s functioning and compared morbidity and mortality rates among specific subgroups of men using demographic features.

Following Ajzen and Fishbein (), behav-iours can be defined in terms of four compo-nents: action, target, time and context. The. These can be simple personal choices like hand washing or more complex situations like choosing to live in an area with high air pollution.

Within the context of occupational health and safety, health behavior relates to how an employee behaves affecting health and safety and the influences of employer behaviors or programs upon employee health.

The health belief model (HBM) proposes that whether a person performs a particular health behavior is influenced by two major factors: The degree to which the disease (negative outcome) is perceived by the person as threatening and the degree to which the health behavior is believed to be effective in reducing the risk of a negative health outcome.
