State of Health in the EU
Health at a Glance: Europe
The Health at a Glance: Europe series gauges progress towards effective, accessible and resilient health systems. The report provides a neutral, descriptive comparison on the basis of transparent indicators.
As a first step in the Commission’s State of Health in the EU cycle, the Health at a Glance: Europe 2016 report was published in November 2016. Developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) with cooperation from the Commission, this publication provides updated analysis of the health status of EU citizens and the performance of health systems.
Apart from various chapters with statistical indicators of 35 European countries, the 2016 report includes two cross-cutting chapters on political priorities: the labour market impacts of behavioural risk factors and related chronic diseases, and the strengthening of primary care systems.
