Public health initiatives
Well-functioning healthcare systems are fundamental for maintaining healthy populations. Good health is essential for a country’s economic productivity and social development. Yet gaps in healthcare provision in Europe are significant.
Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway support programmes on public health in ten countries. These programmes aim to improve the health services and public health systems in the beneficiary countries.
Read about the programme in each country to find out what activities are funded, how to apply, or how to get involved as a partner.
Funding is available for entities registered in the ten beneficiary countries. These may include government ministries and local authorities, public health institutes and other public bodies active in the field of healthcare and healthcare governance.
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health and the Norwegian Directorate of Health are donor programme partners in some of the beneficiary countries. These organisations can assist Norwegian entities who wish to get involved as partners. Project partnerships between entities in the donor and beneficiary countries are also encouraged.
