Our vision is to contribute to better health for all and reduce health disparities locally and globally through research, education, and collaboration. We aim to achieve this by encouraging a diversity of research areas, perspectives, and methods, integrating practice-based and theoretical knowledge, and fostering broad, innovative collaborations for research and education.

Our operations are based on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development goal of good health, which is a fundamental prerequisite for people to reach their full potential and contribute to societal development. People’s health is influenced by economic, ecological, and social factors, and encompasses all dimensions and people of all ages.
