About the Centre for Sami Health Research

Background

The Centre for Sami Health Research (CSHR) was established in January 2001 because of limited knowledge about the health and life of Sami people in Norway. An official report from 1995, NOU 1995:6 Plan for helse- og sosialtjenester til den samiske befolkning i Norge (Plan for Health and Social Services for the Sami Population in Norway), demonstrated a need for more knowledge and research on the health and life of the Sami. On the initiative of the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, a working group was set up in 1998 to study the need for a centre for ethnic medicine in Norway. The following year, the group had completed its report; it included a proposal to create a division at the University of Tromsø called Sami Health Research (Sámi dearvvašvuođadutkan).  

The CSHR has been commissioned by the Ministry of Health and Care Services (HOD) to conduct research on the health and life of Sami people in Norway, and HOD provides basic funding for the Centre. However, many of the projects are financed by external funding.
