Here, ideas about health and social care have emerged that have contributed to the development of the Swedish social care system. Over the years, knowledge, research and innovations have led to changes in the way people’s human rights are viewed and the kind of support society should offer. This is how the Swedish Welfare State grew and developed. We are proud of the fact that our operations have been and still are an important part of this development.
