Carrying out medical research projects is a clear priority for the Prolepsis Institute. Responding to the infrastructure and technical support deficits in the field of medical research in Greece, Prolepsis offers consultancy services on the organization and methodology of research to junior scientists, health professionals as well as researchers employed by the industry (pharmaceutical, food production, e.t.c.).
Indicatively, we refer to the following studies implemented by our staff that relate to:
The Institute Prolepsis has long experience in the organization and application of preventive medicine and public health programs. Τhe Institute is active in both the field of screening and the field of health promotion. In addition, Prolepsis provides consultancy services for the design, application and the scientific monitoring of these programs.
Prolepsis Institute aims at the dissemination and promotion of knowledge on medical research and preventive medicine. Therefore, Prolepsis supports young health professionals, students and scientists working in these fields.
In addition, either independently or in collaboration with universities and scientific bodies in Greece and abroad, the Institute organizes scientific meetings, seminars and conferences on subjects related to research methodology and preventive medicine both for health professionals and for the general public.
Furthermore, the Institute offers internship opportunities to young physicians and professionals, undergraduate and graduate students, and high school students, helping them to gain hands-on experience on public health.
Advocacy and awareness-raising actions that promote public health issues, while highlighting issues that threaten the physical and mental health of citizens and aggravate health inequalities is a priority of Prolepsis.
Our actions aim to alleviate health inequalities and contribute to the prevention of poverty and social exclusion. They advocate for public health and offer expertise, research, as well as guidelines and tools to policy makers. They often trigger the state to adopt similar initiatives, such as the recent example of the Program DIATROFI that contributed to the adoption of a public school meal program by the Governement.
The Prolepsis Institute pursuing a wide range of interventions in the field of public health has developed a humanitarian agenda aiming at combating poverty and social exclusion through health promotion actions aiming at vulnerable groups such as children, women, refugees, immigrants, minorities and detained.
Along with foundations, organizations and companies we design and implement health promotion programs and actions, as well as social corporate responsibility initiatives that have a positive impact for society.
Over the years, Prolepsis has collaborated with numerous organizations and companies, in Greece and internationally. Find more about our collaborations here.
