Sweden and the world are facing urgent and complex health challenges where the ongoing pandemic shows how health issues affect the whole of society. Public diseases are spreading and the inequality in those affected is clear. Antibiotic resistance and the risk of pandemics are increasing. Our healthcare system is fragmented with many actors and healthcare costs are increasing.
Today, almost all healthcare resources are spent on diagnosis and treatment, and very little on promotion and prevention measures. There are great opportunities to save money and give more people a life in health if we think new.
