This chapter examines the Swedish public health scene from three perspectives, each of which involves different actors: public health policy, public health reporting, and public health research. Combining the three emphasizes their interdependence and provides some examples of successes and failures in Swedish health and welfare programmes. The chapter summarizes the public health situation in Sweden as mirrored by its national Public Health Reports (1987–2005) and identifies major themes in Swedish public health research and policy. It also describes the lessons learnt from trying to promote and evaluate public health changes at the local community level.

Keywords:   Sweden, public health policy, public health reporting, public health research
