Centre for Arctic and Global Health

Centre for Arctic and Global Health is a network platform that provides support for networking activities and cross-border collaboration in global health, to health researchers, practitioners and educators based in Northern Norway. We aim to stimulate international and interdisciplinary activities and to keep our partners informed and updated on important findings, events and research opportunities.  

Centre for Arctic and Global Health was established in 2016 to support the common vision of UiT’s Health Faculty and UNN for international solidarity collaborations in health research and education. We focus on the people-to-people cooperation in the Barents region, as well as solidarity collaborations with people in a selection of developing countries.    

Our definition of global health
  

Global health is an area for politics, research and practice that promotes sustainable improvements in global public health and inequity. Global health focus on transnational health related problems, determinants and solutions; involves many disciplines within the health sciences and outside, and is based on interdisciplinary and cross-sectorial collaboration in a public health perspective that includes health promotion, prevention and curative approaches.
