Mission: Information not localized

Vision: Our vision guides our future activities and highlights Folkhälsan’s significant role as a forerunner. The vision is like a star that leads our organisation in the right direction, but it can also be seen as the yardstick by which our objectives are evaluated. Our vision for service production is to operate in an innovative manner and to be creative. Folkhälsan emphasizes specialized, expertise-demanding products and new care concepts, the combination of which will enable us to stay ahead of other care and health care providers. Supported by our vision, we will also continue to invest in health promoting activities. Staying one step ahead means emphasising preventive activities, two steps ahead means that we stress the significance of wide-ranging health promotion work. In our research, our vision encourages us to strive for international success. Staying one step ahead could mean successful research in Finland, whereas staying two steps ahead means that Folkhälsan's research is expected to be competitive in comparison to international cutting-edge research.
