The Special Olympics EU Eurasia Foundation (SOEEF) is dedicated to providing critical services to children and adults with intellectual disabilities through ongoing training and competition, physical activities, inclusive sport, social inclusive initiatives and health services in all 28 Member States. The objectives are to offer quality training, competition, health screenings, and ongoing inclusive opportunities to athletes to maximize individual athlete potential, promote health and a healthy lifestyle both in sport and daily life, whilst reducing health inequalities and improving access to quality health services for people with intellectual disabilities.
In summary we can point out that people with intellectual disabilities have a wide range of chronic and acute health issues and conditions. In many instances, more frequent and severe symptoms than the general population; are twice as likely to have significant visual problems and at much younger age; are hardly ever engaged in vigorous physical activity and find it difficult to make themselves understood when speaking with health professionals; health conditions are may be similar to the general population, the impacts can be greater on those with ID; Experience higher mortality rates as a result of higher rates of cardiovascular diseases. Special Olympics EU Eurasia and its partner national programs provides its service to almost half a million individuals with intellectual disabilities across the EU driven mainly by volunteers.
The Healthy Athletes (HA) program provides access to health care for SO Athletes not only to improve their ability to improve health and fitness levels or to train and compete in SO events, but also to identify health care needs and to improve quality of health care for people with intellectual disabilities. The integrated health and physical activity action plan improves public health and reduces health inequalities of people with intellectual disabilities.
