Minister for Health Care, Public Health and Sport
"Sweden is one of most prosperous and healthy countries in the world. But there are health disparities between various groups nonetheless. This is serious, but what is even more troubling is that these disparities are growing. To turn this trend around, the Government has set a goal to eliminate avoidable health inequalities within a generation. This work is a priority that I am delighted to lead."

Sport – an arena for integrating new arrivals
Sweden's Government believes that it is particularly important to provide good opportunities for new arrivals to participate in Swedish society. The sports movement offers meeting places for everyone and thereby an arena for integration. The Government is therefore giving SEK 64 million annually to support the sports movement's work with new arrivals in Sweden.
