If one is truly to succeed in leading a person to a specific place, one must first and foremost take care to find him where he is and begin there.Søren Kierkegaard: "Synspunktet for min Forfatter-Virksomhed. En ligefrem Meddelelse, Rapport til Historien", C.A. Reitzels Forlag, 1859

Generating sustainable change at local, regional and national levels requires a deep understanding of the needs of all stakeholders. Public Health Innovation promote health equality. Our efforts reach across community health, patient-centred care, service improvement. Consequently, Public Health Innovation has an outstanding track record in translation of research into practice, academic outputs, and, importantly, contributing to real change in and across communities.
