29/11/2022 - The OECD, together with the European Commission, will launch Health at a Glance: Europe 2022 on Monday 5 December at 12.00 CET/11.00 GMT. The report examines the key challenges European countries must address to develop stronger, more resilient health systems following the acute phase of the COVID‑19 pandemic. It includes a special focus on how the pandemic has affected young people’s mental and physical health. It also provides comparisons of health status, risk factors to health, health expenditure, access to care and quality of care in 38 European countries.
A webinar to discuss the findings will take place at 15.00 CET the same day with OECD and other experts, including Stefano Scarpetta, OECD Director for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, and Sandra Gallina, European Commission Director General, DG Health and Food Safety.
