About us

Service Vouchers and Personal Budgets are powerful tools for giving social and health care service consumers a way to affect their own treatment while at the same time ensuring that the treatment is of high quality. These instruments reduce costs in public social and health care while giving public officials more time to do what they are supposed to do: take care of you, your grandma and your children.

Thanks to our growing business Vaana is in a stable financial position and lucky to have owners with long-term commitments.
