Wellbeing services counties will take over the responsibility for organising healthcare, social wel-fare and rescue services from municipalities and joint municipal authorities at the beginning of 2023. Due to this change, the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health website at stm.fi will undergo major updates.

Rewriting all language versions

The health and social services reform has changed the structure and content of our website. The new wellbeing services counties will affect almost all online content dealing with health and so-cial services. The reform will also be reflected in the content promoting health and wellbeing and dealing with information management in the healthcare and social welfare sector.

So there is a lot to update and translate. We have decided to update all language versions of our website at the same time.

We aim to update the system by the end of this year, but due to the Christmas holidays it is likely that updates will continue in January 2023.

Where can I get information about the wellbeing services counties?

Information on the wellbeing services counties is available here:

The website for the campaign titled Stronger Together has basic information about wellbeing ser-vices counties.

The website for the health and social services reform will also stay open.
