Health for Billstedt-Horn

This project represents a “gesundheitskiosk” aiming to empower patients to take more responsibility for their health, decreasing the work load of general practitioners and increasing quality of care through connecting the medical and social sector. The gesundheitskiosk is a one-stop, walk-in clinic at street-level providing disease prevention and motivational counselling in eight of the most spoken languages in the neighbourhood of Billstedt/Horn. The initiative targets the whole population; from “parent-schools” in kindergartens to chronically ill elderly, as well as providing training of physicians, physician assistants and nurses.
