Kagalingan is a Filipino (Tagalog) word with various meanings - well-being, health and happiness. The reciprocal link between health and well-being is such that health (physical, mental) influences well-being (and even happiness), and well-being itself influences health. Nina Castillo investigates how Filipinos articulate and experience well-being amidst socio-economic inequalities and the shifting epidemiological burden in the Philippines.
