Sweden Makes Historic Investment in Health Care Workforce

Country Correspondent: Roosa Tikkanen

The Swedish central government has reached an agreement with county council and municipal representatives on how the additional 3 billion SEK investment in the 2018 health care budget will be spent. The majority of these funds will go to municipalities and county councils for workforce initiatives. Among the initiatives are improving employment conditions for health care personnel through workforce training and professional development opportunities to attract and retain skilled workers and reduce reliance on external agency workers. County councils will also receive funds to provide specialty training for nurses, as well as support for IT solutions that will simplify administrative processes.
