The Nordic Congress was formed in 1952 as a result of the initiative of Danish, Norwegian and Swedish social democrats. The first conference was held in Malmö, Sweden.

The purpose of the Nordic Congress is to promote Nordic cooperation on social democratic issues and to serve as a forum for discussion and exchange of views on common problems.

The congress meets every four years. The last congress was held in Oslo, Norway in 2016.

The next congress will be held in Helsinki, Finland in 2020. Delegates from the different Nordic countries will come together to discuss pressing social democratic issues and forge stronger bonds between the nations.

Through the years, the congress has played an important role in shaping Nordic social democracy and promoting cooperation between countries. It remains one of the most important institutions for progressive politics in Scandinavia. We look forward to seeing how this important event will continue to evolve in the years to come.

Purpose of the Nordic Congress

The 16th Nordic Congress of General Practice will be held in Oslo, Norway from August 23-26, 2018. The theme of this year’s congress is “Primary care – a key to successful ageing”.

The congress provides a unique opportunity for GPs and other primary healthcare professionals from the Nordic countries to come together and discuss the latest developments and challenges in primary care. It is also a chance to network and forge new collaborations, as well as strengthen existing partnerships within the field.

The congress features an array of presentations, workshops, and other sessions that focus on key issues in primary care today. These include topics such as health promotion, public health, digitalization, and much more.

With an aging population, primary care is more important than ever before. The 16th Nordic Congress of General Practice will provide a valuable opportunity to learn from each other and explore ways to improve primary care services for all. We look forward to seeing you in Oslo.
