Health 2000

Health 2000 was a health interview/examination survey carried out in Finland from fall 2000 to spring 2001.

KTL (National Public Health Institute) had the main responsibility for the survey. Also other Finnish social and health care organisations participated. People selected for the survey were first interviewed at home. After one to six weeks they received an invitation to attend a health examination.

The Social Insurance Institution carried out a similar study called Mini-Finland health survey 20 years ago. However, comparable up-to-date information is not available. Thus, Health 2000 was launched.
