Welcome to the Nordic Health Promotion Research Network Web pages!

This network consists of about 50 researchers 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 specialized in  they belong to different sub-groups.  These are: empowerment, equity in health, healthy ageing, health literacy, theory in health promotion, work-related health and Phd review of nordic theses

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

The 10th Nordic Health Promotion Research Conference is planned for June 14-16th, 2022 in Luleå at Luleå University of Technology.
