The Prevention of Falls Network for Dissemination (ProFouND) is an EC funded initiative dedicated to the dissemination and implementation of best practice in falls prevention across Europe.

Through this work ProFouND will facilitate communities of interest and disseminate the work of the network to target groups across the EU.
