MUN-SI

MUN-SI programme arises closer to each municipality needs and local policies and intends to offer a proactive and interactive response to the problem of childhood malnutrition (thinness, overweight and obesity), seeking its prevention at municipality level based on continuous and sustainable actions developed during 1-4 years’ periods.

MUN-SI Program is coordinated by CEIDSS – Centre for Study and Research on Social Dynamics and Health – and congregates the municipality action, the initiative of Academia and Researchers from National Institute of Health Dr. Ricardo Jorge, with the institutional support of Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education and Science.

The main aim is to address and tackle childhood malnutrition in Portugal through a set of activities in which local environments mobilize the community to the adoption of healthy lifestyles. It also intends to reach the National Health Plan on the obesity prevention, supporting healthy local policies through activities in several settings: family, school and environment, mostly on healthy eating habits and physical activity promotion.

MUN-SI is developed towards children, adolescents and families in their respective community settings and it is developed based on 6 nuclear axes/themes distributed by two basic levels of intervention: primary and secondary.

In 2012, MUN-SI joined the International EPODE International Network (EIN), created in 2008 (France), with the aim of supporting the implementation of community-based programs in European countries. MUN-SI is the only Portuguese program that integrates the EPODE Network, an international network with more than 25 countries from Chile, Brazil France Belgium among others with programs that also have similar characteristics to MUN-SI, all of which are community based.
