Our health promotion and community services programmes educate people on disease prevention to keep people healthy. We do this by engaging and empowering individuals and communities to choose healthy behaviors, and make changes that reduce their risk of developing chronic diseases and other morbidities. This enable people to have increase control over their own health. Blue Gate Interventions covers a wide range of interventions that are designed to benefits and protect individual’s health and quality of life by addressing and preventing the root causes of ill health, not just focusing on treatment and rehabilitation. Our health promotion and disease prevention programmes often address social determinants of health which are the economic, social, cultural, emotional and political conditions in which people are born, grow, and live that affect health status.
Blue Gate Initiative helps communities to bring about social change and improve the quality of life in their local area. We work with individuals, families and communities to empower them to:
- identify their resources, needs, opportunities, rights and responsibilities;
- plan what they want to achieve and take appropriate actions;
- develop activities and services to generate aspiration and confidence.
