Center for Social Well-Being and Development
The Center for Social Well-Being and Development (CSWD) is a chartered center at the Milken Institute School of Public Health. CSWD works globally to promote the understanding and use of a social-ecological approach to support positive health and social outcomes to reduce vulnerability. The idea of social well-being draws from the World Health Organization's definition of health: "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
CSWD focuses on a wide range of health, education, gender, age, social and family factors, and relies on a social-ecological approach to understanding and addressing global health and development issues. Please learn more about us on Twitter @cswdgw and our website at www.cswd-gw.org.
