Founded in 2006, the Norwegian National Advisory Unit on Women’s Health focuses on research, development of expertise and dissemination of knowledge.

Our research focuses on

  • Reproductive health, including infertility, congenital heart disease in pregnant women, and future challenges for obstetric care such as lifestyle related diseases and provision of health care in a multiethnic setting. 
  • Cancer in women.
  • Gender dimension in health and disease. 

Goals
Our primary goal is to be a national source of the most updated knowledge of women’s health, for both health authorities and health professionals. Through regular training courses we aim to increase health professionals’ competence and skills in meeting new challenges of care. In addition to scientific publications we disseminate new research based knowledge about women’s health to the public.
