Today understanding and applying the empowerment strategy is a major goal of promoting community health. In health promotion, we consider both individual and community empowerment. Individual empowerment is a process of controlling risk-taking behaviors and factors promoting unhealthy life style by taking sound and responsible decisions. At the same time, community empowerment and capacity building is one way to take responsibility of the society for its population health and well beings. For community empowerment, we need not only to support activities by certain people, institutions and organizations within the community, but also we need to decrease or eliminate discriminations and inequities in order to give this chance to people to take responsibilities for their own and the society's health and well beings. The opportunities to take such responsibility should be readily offer at homes, schools, workplaces and the other settings within the community. The process of empowerment Therefore, is a community action, which enhance people, organizations and institutions participation; improve healthy public policies and quality of life of people and ultimately end up with equity and development of the community. There is a difference between individual and community empowerment. Individual empowerment backs to the man action to make healthy and responsible decisions in order to control the risk-taking behaviors, while, community empowerment means the action of all institutions and organization within the community to increase the chance of controlling the health determinants as well as the factors affecting the health and well beings of society. The main goal of community empowerment is to increase the quality of life and promoting healthy life style. There is a question of whether similar to western world that the health promotion has changed dramatically the life style of society, could be effective in less developed countries? WHO has recently developed useful data on such effectiveness via individual and community empowerment. The data shows many communities were able to decrease the rate or control many communicable and non-communicable diseases such as, TB, Malaria, AIDS, CVDs, Diabetes, Intentional and Non-intentional injuries, Accidents, etc. WHO also provided data on the effectiveness of empowering people and community to decrease inequities and increase the welfare of societies. The future will show such effectiveness in less developed and under developing countries.
