The strategy of the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL), entitled Health brings welfare - 2020 - Welfare brings health and published in 2011, has the effectiveness of THL's operations as its key new focus area. The strategy provides clearer definitions of effectiveness targets that were drafted on a general level in the previous strategy.
THL is an effective expert agency, committed to protecting and promoting health and welfare in Finland.
A just and sustainable society for all where people in Finland live a good and healthy life.
Hundreds of experts from THL's own staff participated in preparing the strategy at different stages of the work and in different working groups. In preparing the THL strategy for 2020, THL took into account both the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health's new strategy, completed in early 2011 and entitled A Socially Sustainable Finland 2020, and the new strategy of the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, published in autumn 2010 and entitled Well-being through work.
