Health in the municipalities

Research about health and prevention in municipalities

Following the structural reform, NIPH has paid more attention to research in municipal and regional health- and prevention tasks. A lot of municipalities are looking for evidence based knowledge about health and prevention. There is a need for knowledge about what actions that should be prioritized, which type of focus that should be implemented and how it should be implemented.


Center for Intervention Research

The center conducts research into what actions within health promotion and prevention efforts that work, for whom and under what circumstances, including knowledge about how the actions are carried out in the best way with the ressources available. Over the next few years, the center will, in cooperation with municipalites all over the country, conduct a wide range of experiments with new and innovative actions within health promotion and prevention.
