Abstract:The six chapters in this volume were prepared for a one‐day conference, "Improving Health System Efficiency: Achieving Better Value for Money", held on 17 September 2008 in Brussels. Jointly organised by the European Commission and the OECD, the purpose of the conference was to assess policies leading to more rational use of resources in the health care sector and the potential of such policies to promote long‐term sustainability of health systems. Attendees included officials of the two hosting institutions and other international organisations, representatives of their member countries who hold policy‐setting positions and technical experts.
