The researchers were prompted to conduct this study to enhance and increase the health practices observed in the community of Barangay Kalunasan, Cebu City which is the adopted community of University of Cebu College of Nursing for Community Extension Services and Development.

Most of the residents in Barangay Kalunasan practiced unhealthy lifestyle and behaviors such as smoking, engaging in frequent drinking sessions, inadequate sleeping hours, poor sanitation, and inadequate nutrition. Thus, the CESDEV-Nursing researchers decided to establish and further study to eventually apply different intervention plans or programs that would somehow help the residents improve their ways of maintaining their health, and gaining better health status, especially on the aspect of understanding the many factors that affect the health practices/behaviors of individuals and families alike.
