About Region Skåne

Region Skåne exists to ensure that the residents of Skåne are healthy and believe in the future. Through collaboration and care across the board, we create the best possible conditions for a healthy life in Skåne – within business, public transport, culture, health and medical care. Together, we make life possible.

We are responsible for social and medical care, public transport, business sector development, culture, infrastructure, social planning as well as environmental and climate issues in Skåne.

We work on behalf of our residents. If you are living in Skåne, you get to vote in the elections every four years to decide which political parties will set the direction and development of Region Skåne. You also pay county council taxes which provide the main funding for Region Skåne’s operations.
