The Interreg Vb project BaltCityPrevention is exactly about this. An intervention manual is to be developed which supports public health authorities (PHAs) in planning and implementing preventive intervention/measures on the topic of health/health behavior together with children and adolescents. The project will run for three years. After the creation of toolboxes for different topics (e.g. design eHealth tools etc.) and a preliminary intervention model, these will be tested in a pilot phase (over one year). This will be followed by an evaluation of the individual methods and the intervention model in general, as well as a further optimization, if necessary. This procedure ensures that the finished intervention model is sufficiently tested and evaluated and could be transmitted to the PHAs of the different countries. Among other things, the project focuses on working with new technologies. At this point, the eHealth tools are to be mentioned. Together with the user group itself, eHealth tools will be tested, evaluated and, if necessary, adapted to the needs of the users in the pilot phase. In the best case, this approach leads to an improvement in the health behavior of children and adolescents. A special component at this point is the cooperation with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). One of the objectives is to sensitize PHAs to working with SMEs. The SMEs expertise in new technologies is less present in the public health sector themselves. By a co-operation of these parties, this is to be improved. Matchmaking events will therefore be organized in the course of the project to mediate and establish contacts between PHAs and SMEs. In addition, working with new technologies (such as health app or games) is unavoidable, especially for children and young people. Cooperation between three parties (SMEs, PHAs and user group) be a promising and sustainable approach to the health behavior of the user group itself. In this way, not only the expertise of both service providers, but also the knowledge and needs of the actual, potential users can be combined.
Another essential component of the project is the transnational cooperation between the seven countries in the Baltic Sea region. One of the aims of the project is this cooperation. Through the advances and the knowledge of other partner countries, it is not only possible to reconsider one's own state of knowledge, but also to revise it and adapt it if necessary. "Learning from each other" are here the key words. Mutual support between the different countries is essential in the project. Therefore, an explicit exchange between different PHAs is planned as part of the evaluation. This will give them the opportunity to exchange the results of the pilot phase in detail on a transnational basis.
In summary, it can be said that the BaltCityPrevention project is based on two pillars. The first pillar comprises a fully evaluated intervention manual which includes two innovative approaches. On the one hand the application of participatory methods and on the other hand the work with new technologies.
The second pillar comprises the cooperation possibilities within the project. On the one hand, there is cooperation between PHAs and SMEs and, on the other hand, transnational cooperation between seven different countries from the Baltic Sea region.
