Health and welfare

On average, most populations live longer and healthier lives. However, there are sizeable inequalities in health, longevity, and welfare access among individuals and groups, while ageing populations put welfare states under pressure. 

For public health, the survival of the welfare state, and social cohesion, this is a matter of concern.

Drawing on our strong competences within management and innovation in the health sector, health economics, welfare studies, and rural research, as well as our cooperation with research environments from health science, engineering, biology, mathematics, computer science, epidemiology, biostatistics, and biodemography, SDU BSS is in a unique position to address these societal challenges and become a thought leader in this area.
