'Caring for people in a healthy society' - this is the motto of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. Caring for the old and the young and for people with physical or mental disabilities. The Ministry's 5000 civil servants develop policy on health care, social support and sport. The Ministry encourages people to live healthily, exercise more, smoke less, drink moderately, have safe sex and adopt a healthy diet. The Ministries of economics, education and housing are working to strengthen social infrastructure and provide healthcare for people with fewer economic resources. This organization has been highlighted for its efforts to fight obesity. Its promotion of sports allows everyone to engage in sport and finances top-level sports, enabling the Netherlands to compete at an international level. This is an innovative approach to encouraging healthy lifestyles.
