Sweden is facing a number of current challenges, including achieving cost-effectiveness in health care, and addressing public health concerns relating to migration and increasing inequalities. This course provides an overview of the Swedish health system, in relation to the broader welfare state, and in relation to other Scandinavian and European countries. You gain insight into how Scandinavian countries, particularly Sweden, assess public health challenges through research, health information management and economic evaluation. Furthermore, you explore, analyze, and discuss how public health policies are developed and implemented in practice.
