Creating local partnerships

Civil society organisations like schools, youth clubs, sports clubs, religious associations, housing association and communities are all settings that citizens frequent in their daily lives. It is generally recognized that if health promoting activities are to have a real effect, they should be implemented in settings like these, taking the socio cultural factors into considerations.
