Long-term Care

In the European Union, Member States are responsible for the administration of health care systems, their funding and planning as a function of the needs of the population. All national health care systems are today faced with new challenges, as the population of Europe is ageing, health care is increasingly effective, some are expensive, and patients are also more demanding.
