National Institute of Public Health and Welfare (NIPHW) is a prototype of a national institute. The purpose of the institute is to maintain and promote the health, well-being, and social welfare of the citizens of a nation and also internationally. The institute is a national research and expert institute. It is not directly responsible for maintaining the national health care system or providing health care services, unless some specific tasks are given to the institute on a national level. It is not designed for any particular country, but it should reflect a general organisational approach that can be applied in and modified for any country.<section end=glossary />
