Health promotion videos available from across Europe on new website
Today, the European Commission's Directorate General for Health and Consumers launches a website showcasing health promotion and public education videos from across Europe. The site aims to promote and exchange best practice for health promotion by showcasing and sharing materials produced by different EU Member States. The videos come from a wide range of countries, from Sweden to Portugal, Ireland to Poland, and they address issues such as tobacco, alcohol, HIV/AIDS, cancer, nutrition and physical activity and safety in the workplace. As well as viewing the videos, site users can request to use the material for information purposes, for example in schools. The site is also open to further development – new clips and feedback on the site are welcome. The official takes place at the European Conference for Health Promotion and Education in Turin, Italy on 10 September.
