Fairness, equality and residents’ opportunities for participation are promoted with health and welfare work. It is used to prevent health and welfare disparities, social exclusion and loneliness as well as to promote the use of knowledge-based prevention methods and models. This is done to support the development of a socially, ecologically and economically sustainable city.
