As the burden of non-communicable diseases is rising in Europe and beyond, countries with the support of international institutions such as WHO are seeking to strengthen their public health response. As a way to underpin these efforts this new book provides a comprehensive description and analysis of existing public health structures, capacities, and services in Europe. Drawing on the wide range of experiences from many countries, this study also sets out the requirements for effective delivery of public health functions.
Health spending continues to outstrip the economic growth of most member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Pay for performance (P4P) has been identified as an innovative tool to improve the efficiency of health systems but evidence that it increases value for money, boosts quality or improves health outcomes is limited.
