The Danish healthcare system

Denmark’s healthcare challenges are similar to those of other developed countries – an ageing population, more patients with chronic diseases and a shortage of healthcare professionals. These challenges combined with a high demand from citizens for better healthcare services put pressure on the healthcare system. Therefore, we need to rethink healthcare to ensure sustainable solutions for the future.

Watch the video about the Danish healthcare system introduced by HRH The Crown Princess of Denmark, patron for Healthcare DENMARK, and learn more about Danish initiatives to improve treatment to people with chronic diseases and new innovative research projects that support the transformation of Danish healthcare.

Healthcare DENMARK is the international gateway to Danish healthcare and life science expertise and innovation. We support the idea of learning from each other through open knowledge exchange and bringing the expertise together as a way for countries to improve healthcare.
