The Sanitas foundation wants to encourage young people in Switzerland to live healthily. With this aim in mind, the foundation supports a number of health promotion and prevention initiatives that encourage a responsible approach to health, an awareness of a healthy lifestyle in an increasingly digital world and integration into communities and society as a whole.
Here are a few examples to illustrate the kind of projects the foundation supports:
