The Foundation

The German Foundation for Health Information and Prevention (DSGIP) was founded in 2009 as a non-profit institution by Prof. Dr. med. Jörg Spitz from Schlangenbad/Wiesbaden. Its goal is “top prevention”.

This term results from the claim to develop and promote preventive measures that are as effective and sustainable as possible. On the other hand the term is a wordplay with the German family name of the founder and the concern of the foundation: Spitz(en) translates into “the top” and therefore “top prevention”.

As a first step, the Foundation collects and scrutinizes the latest research results from medicine, natural sciences and sociology from the perspective of health prevention in the 21st century.

In the second step, the essence of the results is made available to the public via internet, print media, lectures.

In the third step, initiatives for an applicable prevention in everyday life are developed from the evaluation and analysis of the data and implemented in cooperation with professional providers of health and prevention services.
