About BaltCityPrevention

Current prevention measures are often ineffective, since the methods are not tailored to specific user needs. In BaltCityPrevention 15 partners from 7 countries will test a more participatory and user-oriented approach to develop and implement prevention and health promotion interventions.

New technologies will be employed in the planning procedures and also as innovative tools for prevention purposes. The participation of the users and the co-creation process are key elements of this new intervention model.

The prevention interventions are offered by public health authorities (e.g. health care and social departments in municipalities) and address people with different health issues.

BaltCityPrevention is coordinated by Flensburg University of Applied Sciences.
