One of the current challenges of the German health care system is the development of targeted group-oriented approaches for prevention, health promotion, and treatment. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has launched the “Healthy – for a lifetime” initiative to support studies that focus on the needs of four target groups: children and young persons, employed, and elderly people as well as men and women. “GeLang BeLLa” is an accompanying research project to this funding initiative. It is intended to investigate the implementation of specific approaches in the studies, provide opportunities for networking and exchange between the researchers involved in the initiative, and develop recommendations for the future orientation of research.

Thank you for your interest in our accompanying research project!
