Health resources

Health service in the Nordic region is public and, to a large extent, financed through taxes or through compulsory health insurance schemes. In most of the Nordic countries citizens contribute directly, either through insurance schemes or by paying user charges for treatment or for pharmaceutical products. All the Nordic countries have well-established systems of primary health care. In addition to general health care services, preventive services are provided for mothers and infants as well as school health care and dental care for children and young people. Preventive occupational health services and general measures to protect the occupational environment exist in all countries. All countries have well-developed hospital services with advanced specialist treatment. Treatment by specialists is also offered outside of hospitals. For more information:
