DG Health Publishes 2017 Country Health Profiles
Through its Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG HEALTH), the European Commission (EC) has made available the 2017 Country Health Profiles for each of the EU member states. Prepared in cooperation with the OECD and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, the Profiles take stock of the state of health, main risk factors and health systems performance of each country.
The documents also analyse key child health elements such as obesity, vaccination and immunisation, life expectancy and access to health across all societal groups.
In addition to each member state’s report, the EC also presented an interactive EU map with comparisons between each country’s key health figures and the EU average. All the tools can be found here.
