Policy Area (PA) ‘Health’ aims at
improving and promoting people’s health, including its social aspects.

The prosperity of the Baltic Sea macro-region is based on its human capital; consequently a healthy population is a critical factor behind sustainable economic development of enterprises and societies.

PA Health actions aim at reducing the impact of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and associated infections among populations at risk and contributing to the achievement of more rational use of antibiotics. Other actions comprise, for example, the reduction of social and health harms from alcohol, tobacco and illicit use of drugs, and strengthening of occupational safety and well-being at work.

PA Health is coordinated by Northern Dimension Partnership in Public Health and Social Well-being, NDPHS.
