Health is viewed by different people in either medical terms – as mainly the absence of disease and functional fitness – or social terms – as a ‘resource for living’ embodying positive health and wellbeing. Both viewpoints can be useful in different ways – and together – for reducing health inequalities. Yet, one is definitely preventative in nature, while the other is reparative in nature. On one hand, the medical model responds to poor health, as sick people and those with disabilities are treated, usually in an institution based way.

With the prosperity of the post-war economy, young soldiers and other Americans alike could comfortably afford to raise children, unlike before in the time of the war or the Great Depression (Elliott). Millions of couples settled down in the rapidly-growing suburbs and had their children there, owed to the flourishing economy at the time. These factors combined led to the “baby boom,” in which the United States experienced a spike in the birth rate, with an average of over 4 million babies being born annually from 1946-1964 (Elliott).
