People nurture health and enjoy it every day in their place of living, study, work, play and love. Community nurses are closest to population and are in the best position to promote health, prevent disease and reduce health risk factors.

Three groups of community nurses from Celinac, MrkonjiC Grad and Knezevo municipalities took part in a workshop on the development of health promotion programs specific to their local communities.

Through the workshop they improved their knowledge and received basic guidelines on the preparation, implementation and evaluation of health promotion programs. In the next few months, a qualified nurse-mentor will provide them professional support in the completion of the selected programs. The ultimate goal is the programs’ continuous implementation in the community nurse daily practice.
