Health is seen as a resource in people's everyday lives and in society, and is thus more than the absence of disease. Our staff work to strengthen knowledge of environmental and social factors that systematically affect individuals as well as populations, to improve public health and reduce social inequalities within health. We have extensive expertise in physical and psychosocial factors that affect health and quality of life, and factors that can promote health and prevent disease in society
