Service Description

According to the Health Services Act, it is the task of municipalities to initiate, support and coordinate health-promoting activities. This community health promotion is reflected in projects, courses, information events, public relations campaigns and campaigns for a wide variety of target groups, such as children and young people, family, senior citizens, working people, women, men, prostitutes and homeless people in institutions or living environments, such as kindergartens, schools, nursing homes, companies, selected districts.

Health-promoting measures take particular account of disadvantaged groups in order to achieve the goal of equal health opportunities for all.

In order to coordinate health promotion measures, so-called "round tables" are an essential prerequisite for cooperation and networking between the various stakeholders in the municipality. Here, on the basis of local expert knowledge, important topics of health promotion are discussed, local health goals are advised and appropriate measures of prevention and health promotion are developed sensibly and demand-oriented. Stakeholders from various spheres of influence and activity come together, such as independent organisations, the medical profession, municipal representatives, politicians and citizens.

The basis for the development and management of health promotion measures is health reporting in accordance with the motto "data for action".
