Registration open - EUHPP Live Webinar: State of Health in the EU - 2023 Country Profiles and Synthesis Report (15 December 2023, 11.00 - 12.00 CET)

The latest edition of the Country Health Profiles and Synthesis Report will be launched on 15 December at 11.00 at a virtual event organised by the European Commission.

The event will be opened by Sandra Gallina (Director-General, Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety, European Commission), followed by a joint presentation of the Country Health Profiles by Mark Pearson, Deputy Director for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and by Josep Figueras, Director of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (European Observatory). Marco Marsella, Director for Digital, EU4Health and Health Systems Modernisation, Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety, European Commission will present the Synthesis Report and a Q&A session will follow.

The release is part of the State of Health in the EU cycle, a joint project of the European Commission, OECD and the European Observatory. The Country Health Profiles cover the latest developments in health trends and health systems of all EU countries, plus Iceland and Norway. They reflect specific challenges that the countries encountered in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and provide an analysis of the effectiveness, accessibility and resilience of each country's health system, with a special focus on mental health. The Synthesis Report will draw attention to some key takeaways distilled from the profiles.

The State of Health in the EU cycle was launched by the European Commission in 2016 and is funded via the EU4Health Programme. The aim is to gather up-to-date data and in-depth analyses on health systems in concise reports and to make health system information easily accessible to stakeholders. This strengthens the evidence base on health system performance for the benefit of policymakers and other health stakeholders, researchers and the general public.
