The Ministry


The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health is part of the Finnish Government. It is in charge of the planning, guidance and implementation of health and social policy. Our mission is to safeguard people’s ability to work and function.


Our strategic vision is to create a cohesive society and sustainable wellbeing. We are striving for those goals through active inclusion of people, sustainable financing, wellbeing in the transformation of work, safe and healthy living and working environment, and integrated services and benefits.


Our values are equity, courage and transparency.
