Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


The purpose of this project is to research the different types of discourses of health, there are existing in the modern Danish society. The research is important because of the population strives for the discourse of health and finding it hard to figure out what health is and how to become a healthy person. There are so many perceptions of health and the board of health can’t define the health term of the Danish society. Our chosen methods is the expert interview and the sekundar data from the board of health. Besides that the board of health has a different construction of health than the expert Anders Nedergaard which is the project's primary empery. That is why it is important to bring up the different ideals of health for the society. The people have a missing construction of health and do not know the construction of health as a term. Furthermore the population seems to have a problem knowing what kind of discourse they should follow to accomplish the truth of health. It is important for the society to achieve this knowledge, so the population will become healthy and take care of them-self and other people in a healthy contexts. As a conclusion is health one of the most discussed topic in the Danish population, but that is why this topic is so important to articulate, debate and rise the issue about these problems regarding to the lack of a health definition. Health is really hard to define. But after all health could be so many things in different contexts, and has that effect on the population there categorize them-self as healthy or unhealthy person. Otherwise the purpose of this project has been to understand the processes, that creates the discourse of health. This would be connected to the empery as the existence of the ruling truths.
