Health was chosen, along with the theme of inequalities, to be the subject of the Contemporary Issues test in the 2015 IEP Common Entrance Examination, 2nd year.

Health between definition and theme :

The term Health has the advantage of having a clear and simple definition.

If defining a word is sometimes a difficult exercise, this will not be the case for the term Health, which is an advantage for those who will have to produce an assignment.

This simplicity comes mainly from the fact that it is based on the notion of“good condition“, which is intuitive to understand.

This simplicity does not hide the complexity of the political, economic, social, and philosophical issues related to health, which are the subject of a theme on health.
