A new series of Country Health Profiles that summarize the performance of health systems in the 28 EU Member States has been launched. The series is part of the European Commission’s State of Health in the EU cycle, a two-year process designed to improve country-specific and EU-wide knowledge in the field of health. It will inform various ongoing EU processes and support countries’ evidence-based policy-making and health reform. Each Country Health Profile provides a brief overview of the main strengths and challenges in of a country’s health system based on available quantitative and qualitative data and information. It reports on the population health status, the underlying health determinants as well as the health system and its performance in terms of effectiveness, accessibility and resilience.
