New Eurohealth on health behaviours and incentives

This issue’s Eurohealth Observer section looks at health-related behaviours and incentives. The overview article discusses the use of insights from behavioural science to nudge populations towards making positive changes to their health and lifestyle. Four articles follow on inequalities and health behaviours, effectiveness and ethics of health incentives, nudging and solidarity, and the nudging debate in the Netherlands. Other articles include: Political strategies in public health; Pharmaceutical cost containment in Poland and Hungary; Joint hospital procurement in Croatia; and Eurohealth Monitor.
