European border regions are affected by higher levels of unemployment, poorer health, double the level of ageing and more poverty. Living near to a border region means fewer opportunities in the field of employment, education, mobility, health care and welfare. This is because the orientation of policy is predominantly national. As a result, crossing a country’s borders can be a daunting task.
Citizens regularly cross borders. Within euPrevent, knowledge and experience are also crossing borders.
The 36 structural partners form the beating heart of euPrevent. They work together in sub-groups on various health topics.
Organisations often have a national orientation and are invited to national networks and exchanges. In border regions it is also important to get to know your immediate neighbours better and work together on a healthy Euregion.
