Improving equity in health in Germany and supporting health promotion for the socially disadvantaged – those are the principal aims of the nationwide Cooperation Network “Equity in Health” (Kooperationsverbund Gesundheitliche Chancengleichheit). As a group of currently 66 institutions and organisations in health promotion which is always based on the people’s socioeconomic status, the Cooperation Network creates the professional framework and supports exchange as the interface between practice, science and the political decision-making level. The Cooperation Network was established in 2003 on the initiative of the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA). The activities of the Cooperation Network focus on four key fields: health promotion in districts, for children, the unemployed, for refugees and the elderly. Since 2011, the municipal partner process “Health for all” is our main activity.
