Finnish Medicine and Healthcare

Finland is known for its modern welfare society and highly dominating public sector. This can be seen in schooling and education as well as in infrastructure and social welfare. Finland continues to rank as one of the highest for example in international PISA survey for grade school students. Finland’s primary education has been ranked as the best one in the world after World Economic Forum in 2016.

We rank the second lowest OECD country in certain joint (hip and knee) replacement surgery complications as well being the 2nd best country in deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. Compared to USA the risk of having such postoperative complication in Finland is around 6 times lower being 600 patients per 100,000 discharged patients. Finland is extremely low in  postoperative sepsis in abdominal surgeries as well – only 400 cases per 100,000 discharged patients while the risk for this severe infection in USA being 5 times higher. See more on OECD reports about these surgical complications.

Finnish healthcare can be considered a success because of several indicators:

The social and welfare program starts actively from newborns: in Finland there is 3rd lowest infant mortality rate of 2.2 per 1000 under 5-year-olds it being 5.8 in USA. The vaccination program for young children is also very inclusive, as almost 99% of children under 2 years of age are vaccinated against whooping cough (pertussis) and measles.
