OECD Health at a Glance 2018: Asia/Pacific and Europe
21st January 2019
Two regional reports are presented. The
report on Asia/Pacific presents a set of key indicators on health and health care systems to measure the progress of Asia-Pacific countries towards the SDGs. It also includes dashboards to compare health system performance across countries. The
report on Europe presents comparative analyses of the health status of EU citizens and the performance of the health systems of European countries. A first part focuses on the need for concerted efforts to promote better mental health and outlines possible strategies for reducing wasteful spending in health. The second part presents the most recent trends in key indicators of health status, risk factors and health spending, together with a discussion of progress in improving the effectiveness, accessibility and resilience of European health systems.
