The Flanders Institute for Healthy Living (Vlaams Instituut Gezond Leven) aims to promote healthy living and a healthy environment, thereby helping to create a better quality of life for everyone in Flanders.
It is an expertise centre for health promotion and disease prevention. It provides strategies, advice, methodologies, support of implementation and training for health workers and professionals. These are aimed at all those involved in health promotion and disease prevention. It is for both front-line workers and policymakers.
Its experts develop ready-to-use packs with a strong scientific foundation. These support the work done by health professionals. The Flanders Institute for Healthy Living fulfills a link function between the theory and practice of health promotion.
The Flanders Institute for Healthy Living works closely with the LOGOs (LOkaal GezondheidsOverleg, local deliberation on health), thereby supporting local activities around the six Flemish health targets.
