Health Promotion

Health Promotion

We are interested in improving the health and well-being of individuals, families, populations, communities and society and supporting them to make healthier and sustainable choices. Our research focuses on health and health choices, their determinants, and health literacy and health promotion activities in local settings such as families, schools, social and health services and social media. Our new area of interest is planetary health.

We aim to strengthen the knowledge base, improve understanding and promote the health and well-being, and develop health communication, support and services to meet people’s needs.

We value multidisciplinary research and conduct research in national and international interdisciplinary teams and with individuals, families, professionals, organisations and businesses.
