Welcome to the Nordic Health Promotion Research Network Web pages!

This network consists of researchers active in health promotion research from the five Nordic countries, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden and they meet biannually at the location of WHO in Copenhagen.

The aims for the network are to

  1. develop the theoretical understanding of health promotion;
  2. develop Nordic research cooperation in health promotion, from a Nordic perspective;
  3. work together with the Nordic Conference on Health Promotion held every third year.

It is a working network and the members have high competences within public health and health promotion. Depending on which aspect of health promotion they are particularly interested in, they belong to different working-groups. These are: empowerment, equity in health, health literacy, healthy ageing, theories in health promotion, PhD review of Nordic theses, work-related health, and Covid-19 from a HP perspective.

The members of the network meet biannually at the WHO’s regional office at the UN City in Copenhagen.
