Organisation summary: The Fund for a Healthy Austria (Fonds Gesundes Östereich, FGÖ), the national competence centre for health promotion, is granted a yearly budget which is to be used for supporting projects on health promotion and primary prevention as well as providing further education on these topics. This is one of the very few cases in which a fixed budget is allocated to a specific public health related service. In 2008 social health insurance spent €116 million (about 0.84% of its total health insurance expenditure) on measures geared towards early detection of diseases and health promotion and € 347 million (about 2.5% of total health insurance expenditure) on measures to strengthen the population‟s health, prevent disease and provide medical rehabilitation.
