About the Child Healthcare Atlas for Norway

The Child Healthcare Atlas provides insight into the distribution of children's health services in Norway.

A total of 10.6 million contacts between children and the health service were analysed; 7.1 million consultations in primary healthcare and approx. 3.5 million in the specialist health service. Among other things, the atlas looked at consultations for asthma, epilepsy, constipation, viral and respiratory tract infections, bronchiolitis and viral gastroenteritis. The analyses show considerable geographical differences in health services for children. They also uncovered surprisingly high use of health services in a child population that is assumed to be among the healthiest in the world. The Child Healthcare Atlas for Norway was the second report from the Helseatlas.no project.
