Norheim is Director of Bergen Centre for Ethics and Priority Setting

Norheim’s wide-ranging research interests include theories of distributive justice, inequality in health, priority setting in health systems, and how to achieve Universal Health Coverage and the Sustainable Development Goal for health. As part of BCEPS, he leads, with Stéphane Verguet, the research project Disease Control Priorities – Ethiopia (2017-2021), funded by BMGF. He also leads Inclusive Public Health Interventions, funded by Research Council Norway.
