Norway Appoints New Elder and Public Health Minister

Country Correspondent: Marianne Storm

Since February 2018, two ministers lead the Norwegian Ministry of Health and Care. Former Health and Care Minister Bent Høie now bears the title of Health Minister. He is joined by newly appointed Åse Michaelsen, who is serving as Elder and Public Health Minister. Minister Michaelsen is responsible for overseeing the provision of municipal home care and social care, as well as public health services and agencies. Paralleling the changes in leadership, the department’s Division for Municipal Services was divided into two divisions for primary care and home and social care.
