Regeneration & Progress

Enhancing health and promoting active, healthy lifestyles for as many people as possible is the heart of Regeneration & Progress’ work.

The nonprofit organization, supported exclusively by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), serves a wide range of people of all ages, from older adults on remote Greek islands to athletes preparing for the Olympic Games.

An important pillar in the organization’s work is the SNF-initiated Mobile Medical Units (MMU) program, which offers free medical examinations and health care services to residents of remote islands and mainland regions in Greece. Experienced health professionals provide a wide range of specialized services using the MMUs’ digital mammography unit, dental unit, bone density scanner, and more, effectively transforming local public space into a clinic tailored to the community within hours.

Regeneration & Progress also offers free sports activities to adults and children through a variety of programs, like the traveling Sports Paths program for kids and events for all ages at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC).
