This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Swedish government last week confirmed a cash injection of SKr 3.75 billion ($364 million) for the health service, in accordance with its cross party agreement negotiated in June 2000. Health minister Lars Engqvist insisted, that the money, which was aimed at reducing waiting lists, was already having the desired effect. "The most convincing example is the increase in the number of cataract operations, from 39,500 in 1994 to 72,000 last year," he said. He added that the number of hip operations had also increased, from 12,000 in 1994 to 16,000 in 2000.
