Why Finland

Safe, clean air and water, close to nature, genuine care, nice people

Licensed Operators

Private operators provide both primary health care and specialised medical care services. Private healthcare companies must apply for a licence for their operations from a Regional State Administrative Agency or the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health (Valvira). Thereby you can be sure that the heath care and medical care companies are authentic and take responsibility for their work.

Life Expectancy

Finland is among the world’s top 25 countries in life expectancy at birth. Based on WHO’s Life expectancy and Healthy life expectancy Data from 2016, life expectancy for both sexes was 81.4 years, for men 78.7 years and for female 84.2 years. This can be compared to China (both sexes 76.4 years, male 75 years and female 77.9 years) and the US (both sexes 78.5 years, male 76 years and female 81 years). In Finland you can find out how to live a long, happy and healthy life.

Cancer Survival

Finland has first-class cancer treatment and research. The 5-year survival rate for most cancers in Finland is among the highest in the world. Five years after prostate cancer diagnosis, 93.2 % of the patients in Finland are alive, and for breast cancer 88.5% are alive five years later. Therefore we can say that Finland is one of the best countries to treat cancer.
