5: Health, Population and Well-being

This research group brings together researchers interested in the study of the various dynamics related to health. It integrates an interdisciplinary group whose research reflect different disciplinary backgrounds and research interests that allow the construction of fundamental knowledge that is proving to be crucial in responding to the growing complexity of health issues and, for this very reason, require differentiated inputs in their resolution. Considering current research interests and the challenges of society for the 21st century for more and better health and well-being, this group promotes three major research areas, organised into research teams: 1) Population dynamics and aging; 2) Determinants and inequalities in health and well-being; 3) Public policies, organizations and health professions.
