Review of health and social care reform measures in Finland

The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health invited the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies to organize a panel of international experts to provide an evidence-informed pre-review of proposed comprehensive health and social care reform measures in Finland. The review had four broad aims:

  • To review the objectives of the reform proposals
  • To assess the expected impact of reform proposals by analyzing the strategies for re-form and drawing on experience with similar reforms elsewhere in relevant countries
  • To identify prerequisites to enable effective reform implementation
  • To provide possible recommendations to adjust reform proposals in light of the results of the analysis.

The review was published in 2016 and is available here.
