The Swedish Health Care System Anna Häger Glenngård

All three levels of Swedish government are involved in the health care system. At the national level, the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs is responsible for overall health and health care policy, working in concert with eight national government agencies.

At the regional level, 12 county councils and nine regional bodies are responsible for financing and delivering health services to citizens.

At the local level, 290 municipalities are responsible for care of the elderly and the disabled. The local and regional authorities are represented by the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR).
