Living Life with Cerebral Palsy in the Nordic Countries

About the project

The main objective is to significantly increase the knowledge of how persons with a highly complex and lifelong disability are affected at the individual, family, and societal level, by building a Nordic registry-based platform with a network of researchers from five of the Nordic countries, Specifically, we will investigate how living with CP affects the health, quality of life, healthcare utilization, education, labor market outcomes, socioeconomic status, and mortality throughout the lifespan of individuals with CP and his/her parents. We will also investigate if these effects differ between genders, within and across the Nordic countries.


Multidisciplinary reearchers from Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Finland.
