Development of Scenarios for Health Expenditures in the Accession Economies: Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia

The main objective of the research is to discuss future development of healthcare system revenues and expenditures in selected CEE countries, now all new EU Member States. The report’s projections are based on the methodology adopted in the International Labour Organization (ILO) social budget model. The projections examine the impact of demographic changes and changes in health status on future health  expenditures. Additionally, future changes in the countries’ labourmarket participation as well as the impact on each healthcare system’s  revenues were also examined.
