The purpose of this paper is to review different perspectives of health and illness keeping the human being at the center.
This paper has been written based on the review of secondary literature.
The analysis indicates that the appropriate perspective to use depends on normative considerations and the particular policy context to which it will be applied.
The main limitation was time and resources, which were overcome by meticulous analysis of secondary data and also through comparison of the results by achieving triangulation.
The paper analyzed different perspectives of health and illness in order to increase the insight to the phenomena of health and illness; and also to reach a decision whether consensus among the perspectives is possible or otherwise.
After analyzing the existing perspectives of health and illness, this paper proposes that an appropriate approach is needed to reconcile different perspectives for sustainable use.
