OECD EU Country Health Profiles 2019
The OECD in December 2019 published updated versions of the 2019 series of its E.U. Country Health Profiles.
The profiles provide a concise overview of health and health systems in the EU/European Economic area, emphasizing the particular characteristics and challenges in each country against a backdrop of cross-country comparisons. Each Country Health Profile provides a short summary of:
- Health status
- Risk factors
- The organization of the health system
- Its effectiveness, accessibility and resilience
The Country Health Profiles are part of the European Commission’s “State of Health in the EU” cycle and are the joint work of the OECD and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, in cooperation with the European Commission.
They are released once every two years, alternating with the release of Health at a Glance: Europe.
This is the second series of the OECD’s biennial country health profiles, available here for download.
