Learn more about what self-care is and why it is so important.

What is self-care?

WHO defines self-care as individuals, families and communities’ promoting and maintaining their own health, preventing disease, and coping with illness and disability, with or without the support of a health worker.

I have heard about self-care interventions, what are they?

Self-care interventions are the evidence-based tools that support self-care. They include medicines, counselling, diagnostic kits, and digital technologies. Now is an exciting time with more and more tools being developed.

Why is self-care so important?

Self-care is about empowering people to be active agents in their own healthcare. As well as being the right thing to do, with more and more pressure on health systems, there is a great need. Those pressures include:
  • 4.3 billion people have inadequate access to essential facility-based health services.
  • Estimated global shortage of health workers to achieve and sustain Universal Health Care (UHC) is expected to grow to 18 million health workers by 2030.
  • 1 in 5 of the world’s population now living in humanitarian crises, in which health systems are challenged to deliver essential services.
  • Pandemics, like COVID-19, armed conflicts and climate change have also disrupted and stretched health services worldwide.

Self-care and self-care interventions are part of the future of healthcare. They should not replace health systems, but rather enhance them.
