As described by Ottawa Charter, Health promotion as the first level of prevention is the process of enabling people to improve their general health and well being and hence enables people to increase control over and improve their health. Health promotion engraves all the socio-economic, cultural and political dimensions to achieve good health as resource for quality life. The dynamic young populations during the state of physical, social and mental transition are exposed to various risk factors prone to their health. The holistic approach of health promotion not only demands for interventions to improve health of these young people rather it claims for active partnership and involvement to achieve sustainable health behaviors. Mobilization of young people in health promotion mediates and enables to achieve fullest health potential at individual as well as community and national level too.
