Communication and Information Service

The UKK Institute’s communication and information service collects the research data to be used in promoting health-enhancing physical activity. Most of the materials for physical activity counseling are published only in Finnish.

  • We produce materials for customers and teaching packages for physical activity counseling.
  • We offer expert help for organizations and different projects to make exercise-related material.
  • We promote the use of the organizations’ health counseling materials by listing their details on the national database TerveysInfo which is available online.

The UKK Institute’s own website publish reliable health-related information for the general public as well as for experts in the field.

The UKK Institute’s researchbulletin, Terveysliikuntauutiset, is published once a year and current research news are published online once a month.

Health-enhancing physical activity guidelines – made now in the form of the Physical Activity Pie chart –, the physical activity card for young people, physical activity counseling brochures for customers and various kinds of education packages are much-used tools.

You can order any of the health promotion materials from the UKK Institute’s netshop (in Finnish).

Our library offers information to experts and the general public about the impact of lifestyle on one’s health.
