In recent years the Lancet, a world-class medical journal, has drawn attention to important developments in health and health policy taking place in parts of the world that would otherwise risk being overlooked, publishing a series of articles that examine, in depth, what is happening in countries such as China, Mexico, Brazil and Japan. Now, it is coming home.
Looking at what is happening on its own doorstep, in the continent of Europe, a series of articles will be undertaken in association with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies. They will explore the rich natural laboratory that Europe provides, to study the determinants of population health and the effects of health policy.
This conference will launch the series and will include presentations by some of the lead authors and an opportunity to discuss where next for European health policy. It will be of interest to all those with an interest in international health and health policy.
