Welcome to the Centre for Health Governance, a strategic collaboration between the School of Business, Economics and Law and the Sahlgrenska Academy. Pooled research and education within the health governance area, to generate directly applicable knowledge with significance for the health care sector.

Research issues in Health Governance span a wide range, from governance and organizational issues to issues of cost-effectiveness of specific treatments. The centre takes its starting point in the many global challenges facing health care and these challenges are particularly relevant for interdisciplinary, interprofessional and cross-sectoral collaborations.The research areas and the results that are potentially generated in the area of Health Governance have potentially major effects on the population's health and on society's organization and economy.
