Healthy Society Hub

Life expectancy is rising, the demand for care is growing and the cost of care is increasing. Aging, aging, loneliness and health disparities are issues that require a new and integrated approach. There is increasing attention for a broader approach to health, which includes well-being and factors such as living conditions, psychological complaints or, for example, stress.

The Healthy Society Hub aims to improve health and well-being among all sections of the population. Healthy Society does this with interdisciplinary scientific research on disease prevention and health, with the help of citizen participation and with personalized and digital health solutions, and by bringing together existing initiatives and solutions to create a powerful partnership.
