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.

Regular features

Eurohealth includes: Debates - deliberation on widely applicable issues by experts with opposing views; European Snapshots - analysis of the latest reforms or topical issues on the country level; Health Policy Developments - reports on the latest developments in health system reforms from experts working in the field; Evidence-informed Decision Making - articles that provide a synoptic account of the knowledge gained from published reviews and studies; and Monitor - detailing new publications from European governments and public health institutes, reporting on relevant health-related web sites, and presenting news on EU and country-level developments.  

Eurohealth  includes reports on the latest developments in health care reforms throughout Europe from experts working in the field. It also provides a look at important health policy developments around the world. In addition, Eurohealth  provides readers with up-to-date information on the work of European and international organisations and institutions, with a particular emphasis on the European Union.

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.
