Book Launch 2A seminar was held on 19 November 2012 to launch the book on Health Reforms in South East Europe.

We were greatly privileged to have Julian Le Grand, Richard Titmus Professor of Social Policy at LSE, to chair the seminar.

Presentations of key themes by the book’s editors, LSEE’s Will Bartlett and Bernd Rechel from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, were followed by critical appraisals by Dr Chris Gerry from the School of Slavonic and East European Studies at University College London, and Dr Arjan Gjonca from LSE Social Policy.

Book Launch 7A presentation of the chapter on the Bulgarian health system was made by one of the book’s authors, Dr Antoniya Dimova from the University of Varna.

A lively discussion followed the presentations. The seminar underlined the importance of research on health reforms in the region and the critical issue of health financing and the efficiency of health systems expenditure in the current conditions of economic crisis and recession in many countries of the region.
