The article reports on the current health care system in Sweden. It tackles mainly on the public and private health care system on the said place. It reveals that Sweden today progressively relies to the private sector in order to eliminate the burden on the health care system because of the fast changing technologies, medical costs hike, huge demands for service with noncorresponding appetites for increased fees or taxation. Because of this matter, private companies and public facilities competes for the government fund and the right to give health care to Swedish citizens. Population growth triggers the problem in the system in which too many people seeks services from too few medical practitioners.
