Main content

The article is a co-production from The Pandemic Centre at UiB in cooperation with the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and Centre for Research on Pandemics & Society (PANSOC) at OsloMet. 

Six faculties at UiB has contributed to the article, which raises a number of relevant questions regarding public health among immigrants and covid-19. 

The article also discusses long-term perspectives and suggests new and innovative ways of research.

«COVID-19 is a complex, “wicked problem” that has to be confronted by an interdisciplinary collaborative approach. While the evidence points to what has gone wrong we need to understand why. In that quest for answers our theories need to be tried and tested. In order to take this forward the University of Bergen (UiB) recently established the Pandemic Center. This interdisciplinary center represents an cross Faculty effort at the UiB to jointly develop largescale,interdisciplinary and user-inclusive approaches to disentangle the complex causes of increased COVID-19 burden and the ultimate aim of improved public health. The core idea is that the pandemic will highlight and profoundly sharpen the disparities in public health – but also can reveal the underlying drivers.»
