Recognition Of Health Educators

16

Health educators aren't recognized in Nigeria. To start with, What's Health Education?? Health education can be defined as the principle by which individuals and groups of people learn to behave in a manner conducive to the promotion, maintenance, or restoration of health. It is also a profession in which people are educated about their health. It focus more on the preventive aspects of health rather than the curative aspect of health. In Nigeria of today, Doctors and nurses are performing the duties of health educators which is really affecting the employment and recognition level of those who studied the course. I realized that if we focus more on the preventive aspect of health then we will have lesser work in the curative aspect of health. To solve this issue, The Professional bodies of "Health educators" need to be strong and redefined their principles and guidelines. They need to be active and not be intimidated by other professionals in the health line. If they can do this, it will help in reshaping the profession as a whole and give room for active participation.
