Health and well-being of people with a foreign background in Finland: FinMonik study 2018-2019

This report presents the results of the FinMonik 2018-2019 study on the health and well-being of the adult population with a foreign background in Finland. The report describes the need for and use of social and health services as well as employment and immigration services, and trust in these services. The results of the study give a positive picture of the health, well-being and inclusion of the adult population with a foreign background in Finland in many places. The study also highlights population-specific health inequalities: nausea and the prevalence of health risks are particularly pronounced in those groups of countries where emigration is common due to refugees. Experiences of discrimination and insecurity are also quite common in some groups of countries.
