Chapter 12: EU health law and policy and the Eurozone crisis
Restricted access

The ongoing Eurozone crisis has dominated discussion of the EU for several years, and has raised questions about its future, with many accusing the EU institutions of sacrificing social values on the altar of fiscal rigour. Tomislav Sokol and Nikola Mijatovi_ examine the effects the Eurozone crisis has had on national health systems. An overview of Eurozone economic governance rules precedes an analysis of their dramatic effects on access to healthcare, free movement of healthcare professionals and regulation of medicines. The chapter shows how differential application of fiscal governance rules to different Member States undermines the solidarity on which European health systems are based.
