Those who are most in need of health education are the least likely to be reached by health promotion offers: adults who are socio-economically disadvantaged, with a low level of education and those with a migration background.
Health Box, co-funded by the EU’s LLP and co-ordinated by die Berater®, addresses this educational and social challenge. The project has developed methodologies, teaching and learning materials adult educators can immediately use in different education contexts where these disadvantaged adults can be found for other than health education reasons. They all aim at promoting knowledge, attitudes and skills related to prevent lifestyle diseases and thus at enhancing a healthy lifestyle.
The results of Health Box will now be presented and discussed in the wider perspective of the relationship between educational background, social status and health, and in the light of Best Practice examples from other European countries.
