Health For All (H4A) is the core mission statement of the Centre for Social Research and Intervention – Lisbon University Institute (Portuguese: Centro de Investigaçã e Intervenção Social – Instituto Unversitário de Lisboa; CIS-IUL). It aims with its activities to contribute to making health a vital resource equally available to all individuals regardless of their personal, social and cultural backgrounds.
The general goal of H4A is to do reserach and develop interventions from a psychosocial approach to health, as defined by the World Health Organisation. This means that CIS-IUL examines health related topics (e.g. pain, stigma, mental health, eating behaviours) based on psychosocial processes (e.g. stereotypes; social identities; risk perception; multicultural processes).
