Lessons for U.S. Health Reform: Ideas from Health Care around the World

About this event

What can the U.S. learn from other health systems? Health economics and policy research in the U.S. has been primarily focused either on the details of the U.S. health care system or occasionally on systems in other countries at an aggregate level. Our belief, however, is that more detailed studies of health care in many nations outside of the U.S., particularly those in Europe, can offer valuable lessons for potential U.S. health policy reforms.

As part of UC Berkeley's public mission, we will be bringing together scholars to discuss lessons and ideas from other countries and how those might be related to U.S. health care reform.
