Welcome to this Special Issue of EuroScientist on: Health Policy!
Welcome to this special issue of EuroScientist focusing on Health Policy, particularly on prevention.
The shift towards prevention or wellness has now been operated a few years ago into health policy. Particularly in the field of chronic diseases, which is the focus of our independent coverage in this issue and of a campaign orchestrated by the REIsearch project. This has led to a number of policy experiments over time. As yet, there is no magic bullet to entice people to try and take greater care of their health.
It appears that a combination of voluntary actions by citizens, with prevention campaigns from interested groups, and regulations can help. But too much of any of these ingredients may affect the fragile dynamic between them.
You will discover many examples of health policies aimed at prevention in the articles below as well as opinions on how to best go about preventing chronic diseases. We invite you to comment on these articles and to share your views.
