Münster shall also continue to create a distinctive image for itself as the "Health city". The city belongs to the international "Healthy city network", an initiative of the World Health Organisation, and has become the network’s head office for the year 2004. It is located in the Gesundheitshaus (Health house), an information and advice centre with respect to the issues of health, social issues and self-help. The promotion of health and the health industry as a growth sector of the future is of great significance in terms of the city’s economic location, especially in the context of a high quality of life.
