Whilst maintaining a strong focus on illness and the prevention hereof The Department of Public Health also concentrates on the wider social perspective. We publish and communicate results which may contribute to new strategies in the health services. In the field of health promotion we focus on the resources and opportunities strengthening human vitality since absence of illness is not our sole definition of health.
The Department of Public Health communicates at all levels in the public as well as in scientific circles. Education wise we strive to contribute relevant knowledge at both pre-graduate and post-graduate level, primarily to studies in the field of health sciences.
The Department constantly works to achieve visibility being a leading international research institute and being attractive as a partner for cooperation in relations to analysis of ill-health and health.
