The Centre for Healthy Living focuses on strengthening the impact of local health promotion activities.

The centre also evaluates the quality, effectiveness and cohesion of lifestyle interventions based on documentation presented.
 
The Centre for Health Living:

Promotes cohesion between interventions designed to influence lifestyle choices and the individual's setting
 
Assesses the quality and effectiveness of interventions using a national certification system with an independent council
 
Promotes a good 'match' between supply and demand of interventions, thus reducing gaps and overlaps
 
Supports whole school health promotion by actualising the Dutch Healthy School Method and by encouraging collaboration between education and health professionals
 
Shares knowledge with governments and professionals, e.g. by coordinating the production of guidelines for local health policies.
