Health and causes of death

Health service in the Nordic countries is public and, to a large extent, financed through taxes or through compulsory health insurance schemes. In all Nordic countries, except Greenland, citizens contribute directly, either through insurance schemes or by paying user charges for treatment or for pharmaceutical products. In Iceland, contributions are primarily made by the central government, while financing in the other countries consists mainly of county and/or municipal taxes with block grants from the government.
