In Denmark there is a universal coverage (same system for everyone) and free and equal access to public healthcare. Central Denmark Region is one of the five Danish Regions responsible for the greater part of public health care service in Denmark. The regions' primary tasks are the operation of hospitals, general practioners and practising specialists. The 98 municipalities in Denmark are responsible for homecare, nursing homes, rehabilitation and prevention. To ensure a coherent public health care systen co-ordination and agreements between regions and municipalities are mandatory according to the Danish Health Care Act of 2007.
