Please note that in the above article, published in Volume 11 Number 2: June 1996, pages 105-115, the public resources in Finland for health care are not increasing but decreasing. In respect of this the ‘Conclusions’ should read as follows:

A village-level health promotion programme based on local participation, a population approach and inter-sectoral collaboration between village boards, local primary health care centres and adult education institutes was shown to work and to have significant impacts on individuals' health. Inter-sectoral collaboration proved to be the key element for outcomes and cost-effectiveness. In countries such as Finland where public resources for health care in the near future are decreasing, this approach offers a valuable channel for health promotion.
