The Swedish health care

Helpful informations

On these pages you can fint almost everything important about Sweden:


Most of Sweden has a temperate climate, despite its northern latitude, with four distinct seasons and mild temperatures throughout the year. The country can be divided into three types of climate; the southernmost part has an oceanic climate, the central part has a humid continental climate and the northernmost part has a subarctic climate. However, Sweden is much warmer and drier than other places at a similar latitude, and even somewhat farther south, mainly because of the Gulf Stream. For example, central and southern Sweden has much warmer winters than many parts of Russia, Canada, and the northern United States. Because of its high latitude, the length of daylight varies greatly. North of the Arctic Circle, the sun never sets for part of each summer, and it never rises for part of each winter. In the capital, Stockholm, daylight lasts for more than 18 hours in late June but only around 6 hours in late December. Sweden receives between 1,100 to 1,900 hours of sunshine annually.

The health care and dental care in Sweden is directed and organized by the County Councils. There are a total of 21 County Councils. They have a politically governed management, with elections every 4th year.

Sweden has;

8 University Hospitals

70 County Hospitals and smaller local hospitals

The standard of health care is not dependent on size of the hospital.

The Swedish population has equal access to the health care services. The costs are covered by the taxes exept for a nominal charge at the first visit.


Native swedish people are very friendly and kind. Although there are many people working from foreign countries, they are accepted by the citizens.
