Health and well being for all

An increasing number of Danish children suffer from overweight and obesity. The average life expectancy for the Danish population is relatively low. Certain groups in our so-called equal oriented society have a relatively short life and many years lived with the disease. What are the underlying causes of these developments – and what can be done to prevent them? What can be done to improve health and well being for all?

What will our future bring?

Can lifestyle diseases and a decreasing birth rate put an end to prosperity in the European economy? Will global warming bring back malaria to Nordic countries? And why does it seem that prevention campaigns have a limited effect?

Presence, past, and future

These and many other questions are dealt with in the Public Health program. A dynamic, complex, and an analytical branch of health sciences, where policy relates to statistics and mathematics, behavioral sciences with physiology, anatomy, and etiology of diseases, and where environmental health is as important historical considerations and predictions for the future. 

The program has a progressive international perspective and is built upon some of the major scientific cornerstones: social science, medicine, and epidemiology.
