Partners of Sport-Santé and Programme National Thérapeutique Sport-Santé
Ministère de la Santé
Since 1992, the ministry of Health has supported health sport in particular through its agreement with the Association Luxembourgeoise des Groupes Sportifs pour Cardiaques. In 2018, the ministry of Health decided to invest more in the secondary prevention of chronic diseases through sport. It granted the necessary credits to the reimbursement of the benefits of the persons supervising the therapeutic physical activity classes proposed by the members of the Fédération Luxembourgeoise des Associations de Sport de Santé. The ministry of Health has also decided to subsidize a position of Senior Manager for coordination, promotion, training and research in health sport.
Ministère des Sports
The ministry of Sports intends to create training for sports health monitors through the Ecole Nationale de l'Education Physique et des Sports.
Ministère de la Sécurité sociale
The ministry of Social security develops an action program for the promotion of health through physical activity or sport. The objective of the program is the reduction of the risks related to a lack of physical activity or sports, and those related to the exercise of a physical activity or sport unsuited to the state of health, respectively practiced inadequately. Reducing these risks will therefore reduce the number of treatments for illnesses due to lack of activity and accidents due to inappropriate or incorrect activity.
Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte
The Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte is a public institution under the supervision of the Minister of State. The Œuvre, whose revenues are generated by the National Lottery, supports a considerable number of philanthropic actions and projects. The Œuvre has been supporting Luxembourg's sport for years. However, it also wanted to invest in the field of therapeutic sport which is at the other extreme of elite and competitive sport. Thus, from 2013, the Œuvre decided to support Sport-Santé morally and financially.
The CMCM defends the same values and the same causes as Sport-Santé, namely social commitment, equity, and especially health prevention. The support of the CMCM mainly allows the FLASS to reinforce the promotion of the Health Sport with the aim that the physical therapeutic activities will be practiced by more people with a chronic disease. To a lesser extent, the support of the CMCM also concerns training and research, two other areas developed by the FLASS.
Luxembourg Institute of Health
The Sports Medicine Research Laboratory (SMRL) of the Luxembourg Institute of Health focuses its research on the impact of activity and physical inactivity on the human body, for healthy, injured or sick subjects. Its main purpose is to provide reliable information and to propose new solutions for the prevention, therapy and health issues related to sports injuries to patients, athletes of all levels, coaches, physiotherapists, physicians and decision makers in the field of sport and public health. From 2013 to 2018, thanks to the support of the Œuvre, the SMRL developed Sport-Santé between 2013 and 2018. The SMRL was used to analyze practices on the field, to develop tools (website www.sport-sante.lu, flyers, actimeter, etc.), organize conferences and set up some training.
