Description:

Co-oporation of the municipality of Tilburg, 4 local agencies and NIGZ aimed at a 10 year period health promotion project in a deprived neighbourhood in Tilburg, The Netherlands. During the first 2 years there was no specific theme, but currently more focus is placed on the topic of obesity. The project wants to contribute to the reduction of avoidable health inequalities by positively influencing health-related aspects in the neighborhood. The working method or Equal health (GGGK), equal opportunities are according to the community approach. The reason for the project lies in the tough health inequalities between groups of people. The project GGGK is a pilot project to try out another approach. Possible fertile insights and effective elements are broadened to other districts and/or the rest of the Netherlands.
