All about PRAEVENIRE

What is PRAEVENIRE?

PRAEVENIRE is an independent initiative that aims to give prominence to whatever potentials there are in Austria‘s public health system and to help realise them by means of relevant examples of “good practice“.


What is the PRAEVENIRE Health Forum at Seitenstetten?

The Health Forum at Stift Seitenstetten will take place from 13 to 17 Mai 2019. Key topics of the Forum are:

  • Public Health – Vaccination
  • Healthy Ageing – Healthy Lungs
  • Mental Health – Mental Health & Work
  • Chronic Diseases – Diabetes & Obesity

The Forum wants to learn from successful solutions found all over the world, to use them to discover potentials in Austria‘s public health system and to develop, in workshops and discussion groups, models suitable to fill needs specific to the situation in Austria.

Who organises PRAEVENIRE?

PRAEVENIRE is headed by Dr. Armin Fidler, Chairman of the Board of PRAEVENIRE, and the PRAEVENIRE Board, who cooperate with PERI Change on all organisational matters. PERI Change acts as the central contact for all organisational and financial aspects of PRAEVENIRE, monitors its health communication activities and gives support in bringing knowledge and experts together.

Who can attend the PRAEVENIRE Health Forum Seitenstetten?

The PRAEVENIRE Health Forum Seitenstetten is not open to the general public, and attendance is limited to invited guests. This is to safeguard optimum conditions for open discourse. Should you be unable to attend the event throughout its duration, we should be glad to welcome you on individual days.

How is PRAEVENIRE financed?

Financing PRAEVENIRE is in the hands of PERI Change. Sponsors – such as the Province of Lower Austria – assume patronage of a given project. While their names are published as sponsors, they can in no way exercise influence over the project, so that the independence of the initiative and the participating experts is safeguarded.
