Health and prevention

We want the inhabitants of Qaasuitsup Municipality to be happy and healthy. This is good for the sense of solidarity and for the entire community. Regrettably, the fact is that more and more have an inactive lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits, resulting in overweight and similar lifestyle diseases. Unfortunately, this also influences the person in question and his or hers family psychologically and socially. However, spatial planning allows us to create the settings for promoting a healthy lifestyle and physical activities.

Based on above, the municipal council wants to promote preventive initiatives, partly by interdisciplinary counselling and dialogue regarding eating habits, smoking, abuse, etc., and partly by keeping a keen focus on the optimisation of the opportunities for exercise and other physical activities in daily life. Active and broad initiatives within the health area are also a strong tool in promoting Qaasuitsup Municipality as an attractive place to settle down.
