Health promotion and disease prevention

Health promotion and disease prevention

Research on health promotion and disease prevention is based on a broad understanding of health, which includes physical, mental and social well-being equally. Pertinent measures and activities aim at strengthening health resources and health potential, and besides individual behaviour also take structural societal factors into consideration.
Researchers in this high-profile area implement their expertise on health promotion and disease prevention, as well as evaluation among others in large-scale research networks.
