Conference paper
Part of the Health Systems Research book series (HEALTH)


The new Public Health Act (1981/82:97) prescribes a comprehensive planning, based on the needs of the population. The goal for the health- and care system is a good health and care on equal conditions to the whole population, and the activities comprise medical prevention, investigation and treatment. The county councils are expected to hold the overriding social responsibility of the population in the counties and they should collaborate with the social agencies, especially with the municipal social welfare services and regional planners to improve the state of health of the population.
