In the fourth week of June 2022, the 13th Nordic Public Health Conference will take place in Iceland. The home of the conference is Harpa, Reykjavík´s spectacular conference and concert hall, during the bright night season in Iceland.
The theme of the conference is “Health and wellbeing for all – heading for the future”.
The conference is a platform for the Nordic countries to come together, share knowledge, experience and cultivate professional relationships and networks in the field of public health. The Nordic countries may have many similarities both within health, welfare and educational systems but there are great opportunities to learn from each other. The conference will be a great platform to compare strategies and systems in the field of public health between the countries. Good practices and approaches that have been successful in the Nordic countries will be presented at the conference. The aim is that participants will leave Iceland with a toolbox to implement and work within their field. The focus will be on keeping the conference in the spirit of health promotion by walking the talk i.e. participants will be inspired by our healthy environment.
The conference will run along with three overarching categories: Determinants of health and wellbeing, policies within public health and data-driven public health.
The Nordic Public Health Conference 10th will overlap with the European Conference on Positive Psychology with one joint conference day. Furthermore participants will have the opportunity to attend both conferences with a special reduced fee. There are many opportunities with joining forces with Positive Psychology and our hope is that by joining these conferences we can build a stronger bond between those fields. The shared aim is to increase wellbeing and quality of life with professional and scientific work.
Abstract submission will be open from 15 November 2021 to 31 January 2022. We encourage people from diverse public health work to send in abstracts whether they work in public health practice, policy making or in research. The conference language is English.

Er prioritering på folkesundhedsområdet et nulsumsspil?
Er prioriteringer altid økonomiske?
Er de fagligt eller etisk betingede?
Hvilke værdier ligger til grund for vores prioriteringer, og er vi overhovedet klar over dem? Vil nye prioriteringer på folkesundhedsområdet ske på bekostning af andre områder – eller vil en mere pluralistisk tilgang, der giver plads til større mangfoldighed, i stedet generere merværdi?
Vi ønsker med folkesundhedsdage at skabe en åben og demokratisk debat om, hvorfor vi prioriterer, som vi gør. Med termerne pluralistisk prioritering ønsker vi i særlig grad at undersøge potentialet i en mere mangfoldig forståelse af, hvad der bidrager til folkesundheden.
