Finland’s commitment to gender, equity and human rights principles have shaped health policy and programming towards creating a world where no one is left behind. Since making public health a political priority in the 1970s and adopting WHO’s “Health in All Policies” as the health theme for its EU presidency in 2006, Finland has worked across all sectors to support global health.

In 2019, Finland's EU presidency will again focus international attention on health through conferences on The Silver Economy, taking place 9-10 July 2019, and The Economy of Well-being, 18 September 2019. 

Along with political support for health, Finland has also invested in WHO to meet strategic global health needs including: 

Outbreak and crisis response
Health and the environment
Country health emergency preparedness 
Mental health and substance abuse
Gender, equity and human rights mainstreaming
 
WHO and Finland work together to ensure that all policies consider health so that people can live healthier lives.
 
Kiitos!
