CHAIN – Global Centre for Health Inequalities Research

CHAIN is a leading centre and interdisciplinary research network for global health inequalities, based at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). It brings together expert researchers in the field of health, social determinants, civil society and the UN system to advance health inequalities research, especially for children’s health, and reduce the distance between research, policy and practice.

CHAIN’s purpose is to increase understanding of health inequalities and to research effective policies and practices to decrease health disparities and protect the health of vulnerable groups, especially children. By doing so, it produces evidence and tools for policy makers and public health institutes to create effective policies and practices to increase health equity.
