Das Präventionsgesetz verbessert die Grundlagen dafür, dass Prävention und Gesundheitsförderung in jedem Lebensalter und in allen Lebensbereichen als gemeinsame Aufgabe der Sozialversicherungsträger und der Akteure in Ländern und Kommunen gestaltet werden. Darüber hinaus sollen betriebliche Gesundheitsförderung und Arbeitsschutz enger verknüpft, die Früherkennungsuntersuchungen fortentwickelt und das Impfwesen gefördert werden.

This law improves the basis for prevention and health promotion throughout the lifespan as a shared responsibility for social insurance providers and other actors on the state and municipality levels. Workplace health promotion and occupational safety shall be more strongly interlinked and early detection screenings and vaccinations shall be strongly promoted.
