Abstract [en]

At present there is no national program for child health services in Sweden. The profession has now started work on the issue and in 2009 the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs commissioned the National Board of Health and Welfare to ensure the creation, dissemination and continual revision of guidelines, recommendations and summaries of the present knowledge regarding child health services. In the spring of 2010 an internet-based questionnaire was distributed to all child health services units in Sweden in order to assess the egality of the child health programs provided and which health surveillance methods were offered within the basic child health program. Although the Swedish child health services are often described as being universal and equivalent, the results show a great disparity in the range, methods and follow up of the services provided in different parts of the country.
