Gesundheit ohne Grenzen

In contrast to other regions in Europe, in which there is a long tradition of cooperation in providing health care, there is still catching-up to be done in terms of cross-border coop-eration in the Lower Austria-Czech Republic border region. Health care institutions in the border region represent an important economic factor in the region, contributing to the economic prosperity of the population. A cooperative structure of communication forms the foundation for clearing away obstacles. In this way, the project "Health without borders" promotes the strengthening of cross-border integration, because the challenge is to create structures which are sustained over the long term and which are to be integrated into the daily work.

Networks are built up, providing the direct link-up on the spot and cutting across the na-tional border.
