Strategies and programmes

The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health is governed by the current strategic social welfare and health care policy outlines and the Government Programme.

The Ministry prepares programmes and projects as development and steering tools and submits them to the Government for approval.

The overall goals, policies and measures for the social welfare and health care sector are adopted in the National Development Programme for Social Welfare and Health Care, known by its Finnish acronym as Kaste, for one four-year term of government at a time.
