The goals of this special issue of the Asia-Pacific Journal of Health, Sport and Physical Education were to provide insights into the developing, yet vital, nature of Wellness. The roots of this special issue are firmly set in the 2009 ACHPER National conference held in Brisbane and the realisation that interest in constructs surrounding “quality of life” had grown. At a broader level, Wellness is now seen as central to redefining the National Health agenda. In 2009, the National Health and Hospitals Reform Commission sponsored a report that earmarked a “Wellness focus” as part of an extensive reform in the Australian health system. Globally, the World Health Organisation and the World Economic Forum (2007) have adopted a Wellness outlook for countries and organisations.
