What is the experience of decentralized hospital governance in Europe?
21st August 2018
This brief published by the WHO Regional Office for Europe examines the experiences of decentralized hospital governance in 10 European countries (Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Scotland, Spain and Sweden). It documents examples of systems with decentralized hospitalization to address the issues of efficiency and equity, but notes that it is not possible to transfer the experience of one country to another because of different institutional contexts and policies across countries.
