Better Health and Quality of Life (BEDREHELSE)

The primary objective of the Research Programme on Better Health and Quality of Life (BEDREHELSE) is to promote research and research-based innovation of high quality and benefit to society that can help to improve public health, enhance quality of life and reduce social inequalities in health.

The highest priority area under the BEDREHELSE programme is developing and strengthening intervention research. Design, implementation and evaluation of measures that can promote better public health, as well as research in, about and with the municipalities, will be central .

Analyses of disease burden, analyses of quality of life and causal research are to be strengthened as well. Studies that are limited to describing prevalence of illness and mortality will not be given focus unless there is a need for such knowledge and the knowledge does not exist. Causal and intervention research that makes use of existing data from registries, biobanks and population surveys will be particularly encouraged.

Research funded under the programme must have a benefit and incorporate user involvement in the planning, execution and implementation of the measures developed. There is a political objective to reduce social inequalities in health and quality of life. This programme will target its calls for proposals and project funding towards helping to achieve this.

The programme seeks to increase interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral cooperation; enhance national, Nordic and international cooperation; and expand participation in the competition for EU funding. The programme aims to promote innovation and encourage commercial development in the public health field.

Children, adolescents, the elderly and minorities are the most important target groups for the programme, and these groups form the point of departure for the programme’s thematic priority areas. To be able to solve complex health and societal challenges, it will be crucial to view several of the programme’s thematic priority areas in relation to each other.
