About This Document
Health Berlin Inc (Gesundheit Berlin e.V.) and the Public Health Research Group of the Social Science Research Centre Berlin developed the original German website, which the content of this documentis based on, as part of the collaborative prevention research project “Using experience – Deepening Knowledge – Improving Practice”. The Federal German Ministry for Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) funded the work.

To further international discussions on setting-based approaches to health promotion (community-based prevention) and action research in public health (participatory action research), internationally proven participatory research methods that aim for the active participation of the target group were transferred to the context of German health promotion and prevention practice (quality development). This document presents health promotion and prevention concepts, methods and case studies that have been developed in workshops and through consultancies, and have proven useful in practice.

They are directed at workers in independent service organisations, public health services, health insurance companies or social service organisations involved in the planning and implementation of health promotion interventions with socially disadvantaged populations.
