The National Research Network for Migration and Health

The National Research Network for Migration and Health (NFMH) is an open network encompassing researchers in migration and health in Norway. The network includes all types of researchers, not solely those with active projects in migration and health at any given time.

Main content

The network was established in 2019 by the Norwegian Network for Migration Research (NAKMI) at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI). After FHI was reorganized, NFMI was formally transferred to the University of Bergen in autumn 2023, with Esperanza Diaz as the leader.


The network's ultimate goal is to generate better and more robust knowledge that contributes to illuminating and enhancing the health and healthcare services for immigrants in Norway.

To achieve this, NFMH has the following sub-goals:

  • To map and coordinate individuals and institutions conducting research on migration and health in Norway.
  • To facilitate information exchange, foster systematic interaction among researchers, and stimulate the development of new ideas and projects.
  • To improve information exchange and interaction between researchers and other stakeholders in the field.

All researchers in migration and health who may be interested in joining this network can register by filling out this form
