Northern Lights at Peach Flower Hill - A Norwegian Family in love With China, written by Mr. Dagfinn Høybråten, was recently published at Fudan University Press.

You will travel with Dagfinn to China, and see first-hand the remarkable story of his family's dedication and service. We also discover how his great-grandfather Jorgen, brought Western medicine to China, and then nearly a century later, Dagfinn brings Chinese or alternative medicine to Norway.

This is more than a family story. It is full of positive emotional energy and contains rich historical implications regarding medial engagement between China and the West. As GAVI Alliance Board Chair, Dagfinn Høybråten promoted aid effectiveness as well as good governance.

Dagfinn Høybråten (born 2 December 1957) is the Secretary General of the Nordic Council of Ministers. He was the leader of the Christian Democratic Party from 2004–2011 and held several Minister posts during this period. He was elected Board Member of Gavi – the Vaccine Alliance in 2006, and in the period 2011-2015 he served as Chair of the Gavi Alliance Board.
