Abstract

This study investigates the impact of healthcare marketing on the wellness and preventive healthcare of Turkish citizens. The findings suggest a non-significant link between preventive healthcare behaviours and health knowledge. Moreover, those programmes instituted by the Public Health Ministry and other health-oriented businesses which have an impact on healthy lifestyle do not seem to be a total success. Evidently there is a different perspective that exists regarding the use of advertising and promotion campaigns to inform and educate citizens about the importance of healthcare.
