Centre for Nordic Welfare

The establishment of a Northern Dimension within EU concerning public health and social well-being fits very well in the NHV research programme. NHV is gradually becoming a research and knowledge centre for Nordic Welfare. The psycho-social dimensions of health constitute a very active field of research, especially concerning consequences of disability. A research programme on mental health is under organization.
