Election debate: What should we do with the healthcare system?

Do you think there’s too little focus on health policy in the Danish election campaign? Then here is your chance to use your expertise and put some meaningful questions to the politicians.

Join the election meeting and help put health on the political agenda when the Steno Museum invites all interested parties to discuss the future of the healthcare system on Tuesday 21 May 2019.

At the meeting you will see both politicians and the audience being confronted with actual health policy dilemmas. You will get an insight into the health policies of the eight parties represented and you will also have the opportunity to visit a new exhibition about the Danish healthcare system titled ?”Genetic tests and toothbrushes. How healthcare became communal”.

The event is free and open to all.

About the exhibition

”Genetic tests and toothbrushes. How healthcare became communal” (in Danish "Gentests og tandbørster. Hvordan sundhed blev fælles") tells the story of the origin of health insurance, the dental care programme in schools and the national prevention programmes over 150 years. Visitors are involved in the exhibition and have to take a position on current dilemmas faced by the Danish healthcare system – among other things using a miniature health insurance card to choose what should be prioritised.
