We are an organization who aim to promote a healthy way of life and prevent premature death. By information and discussion we come directly in contact with people to raise their awareness of this topic. There is a great potential for illness prevention, if we can change peoples behaviour.
My health is my buisness
Wrong! Your health could have a devastating effect on your family and friends. A prolonged period of health care will inflict a big burden on the health system and therefore the economy and society as a whole. That is why we believe people must be held to account for their unhealthy lifestyle.
We will be promoting our ideas with websites, social media, information stands, placards, stickers, and most important, talking to people. There will also be letters and phone calls to buisnesses, politicians, and public workers, especially on one of our key demands, the ban on cigarette advertisment.
