Healthy Kids of Seinäjoki model
Healthy Kids of Seinäjoki (HKS) promotes the well-being and health of children, young people and their families.
At the heart of the Seinäjoki’s Healthy Kids of Seinäjoki model is the Health in All Policies (HIAP) approach, in which the city’s various sectors, organisations and companies jointly contribute to the well-being and health of the population, and build an environment for children, young people and families that supports well-being.
Focus on multi-professional cooperation
Seinäjoki’s HKS model aims to highlight how well-being promotion work belongs to all sectors. The main driving idea of the HKS model is the multi-sectoral cooperation between different operators.
Participation is also an important part of the work, so the HKS operating model involves children, young people and families with children as part of the development of services by involving them by various means.
The graph below shows how the HKS operating model affects each sector and entity, taking into account the well-being of children, young people and families with children living in the area. Examples of operations as well as multi-sectoral joint projects and operating models according to the HKS model are listed in the graph. This is a good example of how different sectors and industries work together to promote the well-being of children, young people and families with children.
