This book sets out concrete policy options for promoting wellness among all Asians.

Wellness, or the active pursuit of holistic health, can contribute to sustainable development. The book takes stock of wellness in the region, including the growing wellness economy. It discusses policies in four crosscutting areas: creating a healthy built environment, supporting physical activity, encouraging healthy diets, and enhancing wellness in the workplace. It notes the importance of a lifelong wellness policy framework and of investments in infrastructure such as community recreation centers and green parks in poor neighborhoods, as well as health education campaigns.
