The main aim of the PoHeFa project, which was supported by the European Public Health Programme (2009-2012), was to increase the awareness of local policy makers and professional practitioners of how the socio-cultural context within the local settings effects healthy lifestyle choices and the health status of families and to assist local authorities to develop better strategies and more effective interventions through more competent professional practitioners with respect to health promoting activities on obesity and healthy lifestyle choices, focusing especially on young people and their families.


  • Focuses on planning and implementation of health promoting activities towards children and young people.
  • Assists local authorities to build up a more holistic, strategic and structured institutional capacity.
  • Assists local authorities to create a better coherence between policies, strategies and concrete activities.
  • Assists local authorities to use their resources in a better way and create better results because the socio cultural context of settings are taken into consideration.
