Preventive healthcare for children and adolescents are set in place in order to ensure healthy growth and create good conditions for a healthy adult life. All children in Denmark are offered regular free healthcare services by their family doctor – a general practitioner.
Children between 0 and 5 years old are entitled to seven free preventive health examinations by a general practitioner. Three of these examinations are within the child’s first year.
You need to contact your child’s doctor yourself to make an appointment for these examinations.
