NDPHS-logoThe Northern Dimension Partnership in Public Health and Social Well-being (NDPHS) is a policy framework for cooperation involving the EU, Iceland, Norway and Russia. Formally established at a ministerial-level meeting on 27 October 2003, in Oslo, Norway, the NDPHS aims to promote the sustainable development of the Northern Dimension area by improving peoples’ health and social well-being. It does so by focusing on 1) reducing the spread of major communicable diseases and preventing life-style related non-communicable diseases and 2) enhancing peoples’ levels of social well-being and promoting socially rewarding lifestyles.

As of 2014, the NDPHS has joined the circle of SEEHN partners.
