Healthy living

Investing more in prevention and in health promotion.

Living healthily enables us to feel better, both physically and mentally. However, the opportunities to adopt a healthy lifestyle are very unequal. Through the Funds that it manages, the King Baudouin Foundation invests in prevention of illness and the promotion of health, particularly among children and young people.

Our activities

  • support for projects that encourage children and young people to eat healthily and exercise
  • support for the promotion of health at school through improving sanitary installations in schools
  • encouraging research on health promotion and illness prevention
