Description

Lithuanian governmental organization is a public health care municipal office, established to implement public health functions assigned to municipalities by legal acts.
Functions of Lithuanian governmental organization:
1. Public health promotion in the municipal community;
2. Public health monitoring in the municipality;
3. Communicable disease prevention in the municipality;
4. Prevention of non-infectious diseases and injuries in the municipality;
5. Implementation of public health programs in the municipality;
6. Child and youth health promotion;
7. Cooperation with social partners;
8. Evaluation of municipality institutions' decisions on public health.

Currently, public healthcare provision covers a wide range of areas: health education activities, personal and environmental hygiene, catering supervision, first aid, etc. The situation of each educational institution is unique and depends on the specialists, their tools and activities. Therefore a quick aggregated overview or analysis of schools is impossible neither at the educational institution level nor on the municipal level. Now monitoring of public health implementation is done using statistical databases, surveys, journals, Excel, activity reports, etc.​ This resupts in generalized, unified and recurring health education activities in all educational institutions. They are not always focused on children-specific health problems.

Lithuanian governmental organization aims to find out the unique health needs of children and students in each educational institution, according to which we would perform public health care services more efficiently and organize the work of specialists more effectively.

The possible type of partnerships between selected start-ups or growth companies may be for example licence agreement (buy a license) and technical cooperation agreement (need a technology to be developed).
