Preserving health

In the Preserving Health programme we look at which lifestyle interventions work best with adults with a low socio-economic status.

In the Netherlands, people with only a primary-school education or pre-vocational secondary education live, on average, 6-15 years less in (perceived) good health than people with higher education or a university degree, according to Central Bureau for Statistics figures. Lifestyle and environmental factors have a major influence on our health, as confirmed by our earlier research. Using our additional knowledge and expertise, we are looking for underlying factors. In this way, we want to find out how we can best stimulate lifestyle and environment changes for optimal health.
