The aim of this work is write a presentation of health care system in three countries. One of the countries must be Finland, one must be developing country and one must be developed country. In addition to Finland I want to do presentation about Guyana (developing country) and England (developed country). The reason I chose these countries for my presentation is that they have slightly different health care system than we do in Finland. I have also personal interest in the Guyana and their health care system. I know personally someone who is from Guyana and I want to become familiar with their culture and health care system.
