​Welcome to the Clinical Health Promotion Centre, a WHO Collaborating Centre with Lund University and Region Skåne, for the Implementation of Evidence-Based Clinical Health Promotion focusing on Alcohol, Tobacco, Drug, Malnutrition, Overweight, Physical Inactivity and Comorbidity (noncommunicable diseases).

Our Mission

"A critical stage in life is when a person becomes a patient and enters a short or longer clinical pathway. To undergo treatment is stressful, both physically and mentally. To improve patient safety and promote a faster recovery is therefore important, both for the patient and society"


  - Professor Hanne Tönnesen

Our mission is to work towards better health gains for patients, staff and community via the following avenues of clinical health promotion:

  • Fast-track implementation of patient-centered health promotion

  • Research, education, networks, communication and programs for integrated clinical pathways

  • Establishing evidence and translating into practice:

    • by collecting evidence to be used for fast-track  implementation

    • by disseminating evidence and tools
