Celebrating 50 years of Nordic public health research

Plenum

At this preconference, leading Nordic public health researchers will reflect on the past, present and future of Nordic public health research. The speakers will touch upon a variety of issues, such as COVID-19, migration, health surveys, register data, methods, policy, health equity, and new research agendas within the Nordic region (see the full program below).

The occasion is the 50th celebration of the Scandinavian Journal of Public Health (SJPH), a leading Nordic public health journal, owned by the Nordic public health associations. The journal has played a key role in setting the research agenda in the Nordic countries and beyond for more than five decades.

Do not miss this rare and unique opportunity to learn more about the successes and future directions of public health from the perspective of our speakers and of the SJPH. A special anniversary issue of the journal with contributions from Nordic researchers, including from our speakers, will be published and presented as part of the preconference. The issue will become available on the Scand J Public Health website two weeks before the conference: Scandinavian Journal of Public Health - All Issues (sagepub.com)

The pre-conference will be chaired by the leader of the SJPH executive board, Camilla Ihlebæk.
