The health, social services and regional government reform will establish the new counties and reform the structure, services and funding of health and social services as well as transfer new duties to the counties. The reform is due to come into force on 1 January 2020.
In this way services can be better managed as a regional, well-balanced structure. The aim is to provide people with services on a more equal basis than before and level out differences in health and well-being.
