Eurofond publishes report on "Access to health care in time of crisis"
The European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working conditions (Eurofound) has released a new report analysing how the ecnonomic and financial crisis has affected supply and demand in healthcare in European countries.
The report identifies the groups most likely to face barriers to healthcare as a consequence of the crisis, including a number of new groups that have been generally overlooked by policymakers. It suggests a range of policy pointers, including the need to consider mitigating measures in tandem with policy reform, and suggests policymakers and service providers might consider reviewing crisis responses once financial pressures on EU Member States begin to ease.
