Dutch Institute for Healthcare Improvement (CBO)

 

The core business of CBO BV is to develop, implement and review professional quality in health care. Since August 2012 CBO expanded its activities with the topic health promotion by taking over the activities of the Netherlands Institute for Health Promotion (NIGZ). CBO’s work in the field of health promotion is inspired by the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion, in which health promotion is described as ‘the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health’. Within this context CBO aims to support professionals in the field of practice, policy and research by (action) research, innovation, development and implementation of health promotion and health care improvement. Specifically, CBO aims to support in those stages in life and in those settings where important health gains could be reached: school health, health of vulnerable groups, healthy aging, health literacy, healthy hospitals and healthy communities.  CBO is a respected partner in many European (research) projects, funded by DG Sanco, DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion and by the FP7 programme.
