What can we learn from the Belgian
case?
• Adaptations are necessary at regional and
local level
• Is the program effective?
Regional adaptations
• Political tradition: decision regional or
communal?
• Health promotion system: strongly organized?
• Language: simple translation is not enough
Local adaptation: role of local program
manager (LPM)
Adaptation of interventions to local situation
and population
- identify relevant populations/subgroups
- identify relevant actors (control relevant aspects of
environment)
- mobilize these actors
- inspire local action
- organize collaboration
Is the program effective?
• Evaluation study in 2 towns in French Community
(Mouscron and Marche)
• BMI of all school going children ages 3-4 and 5-6
– Measured by trained nurses
– Measurement points 2007 and 2010
– N= 1300 and 1484
• Control population: all other school children of
French Community of same age at same periods
– N= 76864 and 79602
Results (1)
evolution overweight: in pilot towns
9.5%  7.4%
change in pilot towns significantly greater than in
control population (p=0.047)
Results (2)
evolution overweight plus obesity: in pilot towns
13.5%  11.2%
change in pilot towns significantly greater than in
control population (p=0.046)
Evolution in obesity alone: non-significant trend
for greater decrease in pilot towns
Conclusion
• Implementation requires carefull adaptation
of the program to the local situation
• Results of evaluation study are very
encouraging: effect even after 3 years
