More about the minister
The Danish healthcare system is universal and based on the principles of free and equal access to healthcare for all citizens. The healthcare system offers high-quality services, the majority of which are financed by general taxes.
Danish senior-citizen policy aims at promoting and extending the independency of elderly people and ensuring their continued self-sufficiency and well-being. Local authorities achieve this goal through prevention and reablement programmes and by providing adequate home care services and nursing facilities free of charge for all citizens in need.
The healthcare system operates across three political and administrative levels: the state, the regions and the municipalities (national, regional and local levels).
