Access all EU country health profiles at:
The Country Health Profiles give a snapshot of a population’s state of health and key risk factors, along with a brief assessment of each health system’s performance in terms of effectiveness, accessibility and resilience. The profiles form the backbone of the State of Health in the EU cycle. The profiles offer country-specific assessments of the strengths and challenges facing individual health systems. The profiles use a standard structure and methodology, but the content is adapted to what is relevant for each EU country. EU countries are not ranked according to their overall performance, but assessed according to their national specificities and progress made.
