About euPrevent

European border regions are affected by higher levels of unemployment, poorer health, twice the level of ageing and more poverty. Living near a border region means fewer opportunities in the field of employment, mobility, health care and welfare. This is because policy is predominantly national in its orientation. As a result, crossing your country’s borders can be a daunting task.

euPrevent is a Euroregional network that focuses on promoting health. Within this network, sustainable partnerships seek to increase the quality of life of residents in the border region between the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany (the border region).

  • euPrevent knows we can achieve more together.

euPrevent bases its collaboration on international frameworks
