Welcome to the Nordic Health Promotion Research Network Web pages!

This network consists of about 65 active 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: conferences, empowerment, equity in health, health literacy, healthy ageing, theories in health promotion, PhD review of Nordic theses, website and work-related health.

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

What is Health Promotion?

What is the Nordic perspective?



The 10th Nordic Health Promotion Research Conference is planned for 2023 in Sweden at Halmstad University.
