Globally different cultures have different beliefs in well-being, medicine, and health-promoting behaviors. The Health Belief Model is a theory that individual change in behavior depends on the person’s belief of the gravity of the disease process and the vulnerability to the disease.  As such, change in behavior depends on the belief of the advantages that would come with assuming healthier habits (Jacobsen, 2019).  This means that in order for a given individual to change their current behavior to a health-promoting behavior, they must fear the disease process and the consequences at hand if a change is not made.  In addition, individuals require motivational cues or environmental stimulus to trigger a change in behavior by way of news, adds, healthcare providers, or loved one’s hospitalizations (Jacobsen, 2019).  Again, globally stimulus differs with access to healthcare, television, internet, and population.  An individual living in a remote area would have less exposure to stimulus than a person living in a highly populated city and therefore less motivation for change.  The Health Belief Model-based training has been shown to have positive effects on behavioral change (Bakan & Erci, 2018).  As health care providers, we must take advantage of every approach to promote healthier behavior change in patients for improved outcomes.
