Universal health services in Sweden
The population of Sweden was relatively homogenous until the latter half of the 20th century, but recently has begun to confront the challenges of multiculturalism. Sweden maintains a universal health care system for reasons of social solidarity, with most health services provided by the twenty-one county councils. Many refugees and asylum seekers, however, need specialized mental health services given past trauma, such as torture and post-migration stress. These psychological dimensions affect their physical health, as well as their ability to access and use mainstream health services.
