The county elections of 2022 are about services that are crucial to us all
The elections will determine whether we can secure the provision of high-quality services, combat inequality and promote equal treatment. The Greens believe that we must strive to both defend and improve our welfare state.
At the moment, people have to wait too long for treatment and getting in touch with a physician is a complicated and time-consuming process. In the county councils, we can ensure investment in preventive work and low-threshold mental-health services. When people are not feeling well, they need help right away, not sometime in the future.
Everyone should have an equal chance of getting the help they need. Our social and health services should serve everyone, regardless of whether they are an immigrant or belong to a linguistic, cultural, sexual or gender minority.
