The aim of Eurohealth is to bridge the gap between the scientific community and the policy-making community. It provides 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
- 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 also draws upon the expertise of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, which brings together eminent academics and research centres from across Europe.

Eurohealth Volume 24 Number 1
Leapfrogging health systems responses to noncommunicable diseases
This special edition of Eurohealth, the quarterly publication of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, was prepared as a companion to the WHO/Europe High-Level Meeting on Health Systems Respond to NCDs, held in Sitges (Spain) on 16-18 April 2018. We look at how health systems in Europe can accelerate the pace of reducing premature mortality resulting from NCDs. The idea of “leapfrogging” invites countries to speed up the adoption of innovative approaches in addressing the burden of NCDs and to avoid and overcome the hurdles and mistakes that were made in the past. This would especially help countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia to catch up with other countries in the European Region. This Eurohealth issue explores the experience and potential of leapfrogging in various areas that play an important role in tackling chronic conditions: public health, primary care, the health workforce and information technology. It also includes the views of decision-makers and stakeholders on how real health system transformation can be implemented.
