On Wednesday 22 May, Prince Daniel attended the international "Fine-Tuning Health Care: improved outcomes and cost efficiency using quality registries" conference, which was organised by the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs at Norra Latin in Stockholm.
Minister for Health and Social Affairs Göran Hägglund hosted the conference, which aimed to create an international forum for discussions on how to maintain the quality of healthcare faced with soaring costs. One method discussed was the use of a quality/patient/disease registry. This enables healthcare staff to identify, apply and allocate the best methods and practice. Patients can also be more involved in their own care.
 
The invited guests and speakers included ministers, decision-makers and representatives of professionals and patients from around the world. In addition to Göran Hägglund, other attendees included India's Minister of Health and Family Welfare Ghulam Nabi Azad, Hungary's Minister of State for Health Dr Miklós Szocska, the European Commission's Deputy Director General for Health and Consumers Martin Seychell and Head of the Health Division at the OECD Mark Pearson.
