Project Youth Euregional Scan 2023 (YES 2023)
Improving public health in Euregions requires a comprehensive understanding of the regional and euregional health landscape. With this goal in mind, several public health institutions have been conducting euregional youth scans since 2001, providing valuable, comparable data on young people aged 13-16 within the Euregion Meuse-Rhine (EMR). These scans, conducted in 2001, 2006/2007, 2013 and 2019 , have been led by the GGD Zuid Limburg.
Building on the success of these euregional youth surveys in the EMR, the initiative is now being expanded to the ERMN under the continued leadership of the GGD Zuid Limburg and with the financial support of Interreg VI A Deutschland-Nederland. By pooling and analyzing this data, public health professionals in the ERMN and EMR can work together to develop targeted policies and improve overall health outcomes for the region.
