Welcome to the online offering of the Federal Centre for Health Education

Health education and health promotion are important elements of the health system in Germany. The Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) has been pursuing the goal of preventing health risks and encouraging health-promoting lifestyles since its establishment in 1967.

In addition, the understanding of health and prevention is changing. Against this backdrop, health education is - as a constant communication process - dedicated to the goal of enabling self-responsible action in relation to health.

This website gives me the welcome opportunity to introduce you to the goals, tasks and offerings of the Federal Centre for Health Education.
