International advocacy and public relations

The Finnish welfare system and social and healthcare services  are often considered models for other countries. THL as a national expert agency plays a central role in collecting, analysing and producing information concerning Finnish policies, systems and structures and the health and wellbeing of the population. For these reasons, THL is a popular destination for many international delegations and study visits.

Exchange of expertise is an important part of our international cooperation. Numerous high-level dignitaries and professional expert groups visit THL yearly. All lectures and study visits to THL are tailor-made to ensure that visitors' knowledge needs and learning expectations are met.
