Ingvild Kjerkol (Lab.)
Minister of Health and Care services
The aim of the national health preparedness plan is to provide a comprehensive overview of the health and care sector’s preparedness, including preparedness for various social services. The plan constitutes the basis for how the health sector handles all types of crises and disasters.
The care services of tomorrow must be designed and developed together with users, patients and close family members in cooperation with volunteers, non-profit organisations and private actors, and they must be based on sound expertise, effective management and multidisciplinary cooperation.
