The Danish Health Confederation

Who are we?

The Danish Health Confederation is a negotiation and cooperational organization of around 117,000 employees within the health care system.

The Danish Health Confederation was founded in September 1997, with the aim to ensure the associated organizations the gratest possible influence as regards issues of contract law, for the benefit of employees within the public sector. The Danish Health Confederation can launch common initiatives in fields that are of common interest to the associated organizations, for the benefit of their members within the health care system.

The Negotiation Committee is the decision-making body of the Danish Health Confederation which consists of the chairmen of each organization. Grete Christensen is the chairman of the Danish Health Confederation.

Futhermore, the Danish Health Confederation is part of a negotiation cooperation body at collective bargainings, called Forhandlingsfællesskabet, meaning Negotiation Community. Forhandlingsfællesskabet represents more than a half million employees in the public sector. This gives the Danish Health Confederation a powerful voice at collective bargainings and emphasizes both the value of collective bargaining and The Danish Model on collective bargaining.
