State of Health in the EU

Health at a Glance: Europe

The Health at a Glance: Europe report series gauges progress towards effective, accessible and resilient health systems across the EU. The report which is published every two years provides a neutral, descriptive comparison of all EU countries on the basis of publically available data and indicators.
 

The most recent Health at a Glance: Europe report was published in November 2016. Developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in cooperation with the Commission, this publication provides analysis of the state of health of EU citizens and the performance of EU health systems.

In addition to chapters containing statistical indicators for 35 European countries, the 2016 report includes two cross-cutting chapters on EU political priorities: the labour market impacts of ill-health, and the strengthening of primary healthcare systems.
