AUVA: Austrian Charta of Prevention

Partner / Keynote & Working Group

How can we stay healthy? To answer this question correctly, first of all we have to find a common understanding for the terms ‘prevention’ and ‘health promotion’. The AUVA (Austrian Workers’ Compensation Board), one of the main players in the field of prevention, takes on the task of creating such an understanding as a basis for further activities in the national health sector.
