FSHS Act passed

We are happy to share the good news!
On 1.3.2019 the Finnish Parliament approved a change to the law which makes students of Universities of Applied Sciences a part of FSHS’s health care system.

This is something the student movement has been working on for over 20 years and finally the goal has been reached! Many thanks to our umbrella organization SAMOK, all the actives who have worked for this over the years and all the politicians who have been part of this decision! The change increases the equality of students of Universities of Applied Sciences, makes the law regarding student health care more clear and improves the quality of health care services. A big hooray from ASK!

You can read more about the new FSHS Act on The Finnish Student Health Service webpage.
