The Impact of the Financial Crisis on Population Health and Health Systems
De impact van de financiële crisis op de volksgezondheid en op gezondheidssystemen
The Financial Crisis of 2008 had a profound impact on the economy of many European countries. The aims of this thesis are: to assess the consequences of the crisis for population health; to assess the impact of the crisis on health systems and identify responses that help countries to maintain stability and promote resilience. The financial crisis in Europe has posed major threats to health, but also some opportunities. It did not affect European countries equally, nor were their health systems equally well-prepared to withstand its effects. Economic crisis exacerbates major gaps and weaknesses, but where the right mechanisms are in place the impact on population health and health systems can be minimised.
