SOLUTIONS FOR PERSONALIZED HEALTHCARE
For thousands of years, Finns lived in geographical isolation, which to this day has kept their genetic structure more homogenous than that of most other peoples. This provides exceptional opportunities for genetic research and developing and testing solutions for personalized healthcare, i.e. healthcare based on an individual’s unique genetic structure.
Finland has a long tradition of collecting samples in biobanks, which makes genetic information readily accessible. Its Biobank Act provides a modern basis for research and innovation, protecting donors’ privacy and self-determination and promoting the common good through research.
Furthermore, Finland’s National Genome Strategy aims at facilitating the use of genetic information in healthcare and supporting international research collaboration and the development of new treatments.
Finland is also a leading developer of health tech solutions, with wide expertise in ICT and mobile technology and a vibrant startup community. While all this provides an excellent basis for personalized healthcare solutions, Finland tops it with a well-organized healthcare system and national digital healthcare databases. A winning recipe for research and commercial cooperation and cutting-edge personalized healthcare!
