Research. Debate. Policy. News.
Eurohealth is a quarterly publication that provides a forum for researchers, policy-makers and experts to express their views on health policy issues and so contribute to a constructive debate on health policy in Europe.

The aim of Eurohealth is to bridge the gap between the scientific community and the policy-making community by providing an opportunity for the publication of evidence-based articles, debates, and discussions on contemporary health system and health policy issues.
Each issue of Eurohealth includes the following sections: Eurohealth Observer – reporting on widely applicable international and European health policy areas with a particular topic focus for each issue; Eurohealth International – contains articles on topics with relevance to countries beyond Europe’s borders; Eurohealth Systems and Policies - analysis of the latest reforms or topical issues on the country level from experts working in the field; and Eurohealth Monitor – draws attention to new publications and news.
Backed by experts throughout Europe
The Editorial Team is based at LSE Health, and works with an Editorial Board. Eurohealth is also supported by an international Advisory Board, which is comprised of a distinguished list of academics and policy-makers from leading health policy research centres, national Ministries of Health and international organisations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Parliament. Eurohealth is also able to draw on the expertise of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, which brings together eminent academics and research centres from across Europe.
