OECD Health database



The OECD Health database is an online database with comparative information on health policies and health care systems across the OECD countries (OECD). The purpose of the database is to give a broad overview of health care in the member countries. It offers a series of reports, which contain diverse cross-national policy data, on issues like long-term care for older people, high-performing health systems and private health insurance. Here we focus on policy data.
