BALTCITYPREVENTION (Baltic Cities Tackle Lifestyle Related Diseases): Current disease prevention measures are often ineffective since the methods are not tailored to specific user needs. In the project, 14 partners from seven countries are testing a more participatory and user-oriented approach to develop and implement prevention and health promotion interventions. New technologies are employed in the planning procedures and also as innovative tools for prevention purposes. User participation and co-creation 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.
