Design Brief
To design a community-centred Health Promoting Lifestyle Centre (HPLC) in a primary healthcare setting that has a strong focus on health promotion, wellness, education, preventative care and early intervention – a salutogenic, rather than a curative, approach that shifts the focus away from risk factors and the treatment of disease towards a holistic understanding of a healthy society in the African context.
