This is what we do at IVO

The Health and Social Care Inspectorate, IVO, is a government agency responsible for supervising health and social care services as well as the people who work within this sector.

Supervising these services means keeping an eye on their operations and activities. We also review and approve applications from those who want to start their own operations such as a group housing or HVB home.

 

It is our responsibility to review the health and social care services provided in Sweden to make sure that these are safe and of a high quality. To promote the development of our health and social care services, we also give advice and support to those who work within this sector.
