Well-being and health

Promoting the well-being, health and safety of residents is one of the city’s most important tasks. It is a wide-ranging activity and is carried out in all areas of the municipality, in cooperation with local and regional actors.

For the well-being of Kemijärvi residents

Promoting well-being, health and safety encourages and supports residents to participate, take responsibility and take action to maintain and improve their own well-being, health and safety in a safe, healthy and comfortable everyday environment, with high-quality and equitable services.

The aim is to narrow the gaps in well-being and health between population groups, maintain and improve mental health, substance-free living, safety and inclusion, work and functional capacity, and prevent illness, accidents, exclusion and social exclusion.
