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 and work-related health
If you want to be a member of this network or want to get in contact with members for education, supervising, examinationsboards etc, please contact Karin.Ringsberg@gu.se
Next conference, the ninth Nordic Health Promotion Research Conference will be held 12-14 June 2019 in Roskilde. Main theme: Health: Societal Responsibility or individual obligation? Addressing sustainable health promotion in theory and practice
