This theme is about taking care of your health in Sweden.

You will be asked to think about what health is and what you yourself can do to feel well and keep healthy. The text describes how you can care for yourself if you are ill but not in need of medical care.

It also explains how medical care in Sweden works, how to find your way among the medical care services and who works there. You will also be asked to think about your rights and obligations in medical care.

You will also be asked to think about issues related to your body and the right to make decisions about your own body.
