How can we work together to reduce social inequalities in health? Photo: David Jensen, UiT

In modern welfare states like Norway, all citizens have in principle equal access to education, and health services. Yet health inequities between population groups increase. Why? What can we do to successfully reduce social inequalities in health?

Healthy Choices aims to expand knowledge about how policy and interventions could improve population health and reduce health inequalities between groups, geographic areas and gender.

Our work includes ongoing and planned research on health behavior and social inequalities in health carried out at UiT The Arctic University of Norway in collaboration with national and international partners.
