Fonds Gesundes Österreich
Fonds Gesundes Österreich was founded in 1998 as the national contact point and funding office for prevention and health promotion based on a special law that is considered a model internationally.
In health promotion, we support
- practical and scientific projects,
- structural development,
- and continuing training and networking.
Other important tasks are as follows:
We wish to raise awareness about prevention and health promotion among as many people as possible with information, education and public relations work. As the central health promotion institution we also support activities at the myriad of self-help organizations in Austria. We receive € 7.25 million in public funds each year to conduct our activities.
