HEPRO (Health and Social Well-being in the Baltic Sea Region) was a public health project running from 2005-2008. The project was part-financed by the European Union as part of the BSR INTERREG IIIB programme, and managed by Østfold County Council in Norway.

The national Healthy Cities networks in the Baltic Sea Region and the World Health Organization both supported HEPRO. The HEPRO concept was based on the principles of the WHO "Health for All" strategy and Local Agenda 21.

32 partners from 8 countries participated in the HEPRO project. These were Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia. The partners represented institutions, cities, municipalities, and regions from diverse and challenged parts of the Baltic Sea Region.
