The Department of Public Health was established in 1997. Our primary focus is to improve the health of the population and the connection between health and society.

The Department of Public Health fulfils its mission to provide the scientific foundation for efforts to improve public health, both nationally and globally, and to create greater insight into the links between health, the individual and society as well as the ethical, equity and political implications. This is achieved through research, education and engagement with stakeholders and the public at large with a wide-ranging multidisciplinary research agenda covering most aspects of public health at a high international level.

The research is carried out in our eight research sections and three research centres.

Research
Research at the Department of Public Health contributes to the scientific foundation for improving the health of the population and for increased insight into the connection between health and society.

The primary focus of research is the occurrence, distribution and causes of diseases and disease consequences in the population. The research also includes the study of health promotion, prevention and rehabilitation efforts as well as the organization, function and results of the health serivices.
