Marika, a 10-year-old girl with the rare Goldenar syndrome, was in need of a new doctor after her previous pediatrician’s contract expired. Due to her immobility, finding a doctor who could provide home visits was crucial. After her story was shared in a newspaper, the local health authority (Asp) quickly helped Marika’s mother, Maria, find a new doctor in their area. While there is a shortage of pediatricians, the Asp regularly monitors and communicates any gaps in medical coverage to the regional health department, which then hires doctors from a waiting list. In this case, finding a doctor who could make home visits was essential for Marika’s healthcare needs.
