Heart to Heart symposium 

Major new insights into health differences between Norway and Russia. Join us for an exciting two day symposium!

Together with London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), Northern State Medical University (NSMU) and Novosibirsk State Medical University, UiT arranges a symposisum based on the Heart to Heart project.  

The main aim of the Heart to Heart project is to explore the differences in population health in general, and cardiovascular health in particular, between Norway and Russia. Data from the Tromsø Study is compared with population data from Arkhangelsk and Novosibrisk in Russia. The main aim of the symposium is to show preliminary results from the project and to attract researchers and funders in order to continue the project.

The symposium will be arranged in Tromsø 25 - 26 September.

Symposium “Exploring Global Health in the Arctic” 

The symposium “Exploring Global Health in the Arctic” was arranged in Tromsø 22 - 23 January 2018 by Centre for Arctic and Global Health and Migra-Nord, both UiT – The Arctic University of Norway, in collaboration with People’s Health Movement Scandinavia and Norwegian Forum for Global Health Research/Global Health Norway.

  • Solidarity in health – “Folk-til-folk” (People-to-people) collaboration in practice in north and south
