How can people in Estonia live a healthy life for longer?
There are many influencing factors: the environment, accessible and high-quality healthcare, workplace safety, standard of living. But in many ways, health, well-being and quality of life depend on everyone’s own choices – how health-conscious we are, what we eat and drink, how much we exercise and care for ourselves.
