Companion Report

The Commission presents a Companion Report alongside the Country Health Profiles to shine a light on some horizontal observations – trends that can be found in most, if not all, EU Member States. Inevitably, this touches on demographic and technological changes, the shift towards primary care and prevention, and the burden put upon the health workforce.

The State of Health in the EU’s 2019 Companion Report showcases five pertinent cross-EU takeaways from the analysis underpinning the profiles (Part 1), while also adding their country-specific key findings (Part 2).

Like all of the State of Health in the EU reports, Part 1 of the Companion Report is structured along the triple objectives of effectiveness, accessibility and resilience.

  • The effectiveness dimension is solely geared towards health promotion and disease prevention, with the first two chapters focusing on vaccine hesitancy (Chapter 1) and digital transformation (Chapter 2).
  • With regard to accessibility, the Companion Report attempts to gain a clearer picture of the barriers that EU citizens experience across Europe to accessing health care, factoring in socio-economic characteristics as well as clinical profiles (Chapter 3).
  • To provide some insight into the resilience of EU health systems, the report deals with the topics of task shifting in health service delivery (Chapter 4) and examines the possible implications of the product life cycle of pharmaceuticals for safe, effective and affordable medicines (Chapter 5).

Part 2 of the report features key findings from the Country Health Profiles prepared by the OECD and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies.
