The most recent Health at a Glance: Europe report was published in November 2020. Developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in cooperation with the Commission, this publication provides analysis of the state of health of EU citizens and the performance of EU health systems.

In addition to chapters on health status, risk factors for health, health expenditure, quality and access to care in 36 European countries, the 2020 report includes 2 thematic chapters of high relevance for the EU’s agenda. The first chapter provides an in-depth analysis and assessment of European health systems’ resilience to the COVID-19 health crisis. The second chapter presents an assessment of the impact of air pollution on health in Europe.
