Round table discussion
UArctic's Thematic Networks foster issues-based cooperation within networks that are focused but flexible enough to respond quickly to topical Arctic issues.
The goal of the Thematic Network on Health and Well-being is to support sustainable development on health and well-being in populations in the circumpolar regions. The network aims to do so by
• promoting research projects and education on health;
• organizing research training;
• distributing scientific information.
The network will base its research and higher education activities on the contemporary needs and priorities of the circumpolar regions and aims to promote a multidisciplinary approach to improve social circumstances for the populations, both in regard to health and well-being as well as delivery of health care and social services in the Arctic.
