Learning from Other Nations About Universal Coverage and Cost-Containment


The 2008 U.S. presidential campaign presents a unique opportunity to bring to U.S. policymakers valuable lessons from other industrialized nations regarding their implementation of universal health insurance coverage and their mechanisms for controlling costs. Project staff will establish a European–U.S. Experts Advisory Group to identify and compare best practices in Denmark, England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland and gauge their transferability to the United States. A series of commissioned papers will provide the content for the 2008 International Symposium on Health Policy; these will later be submitted for consideration as Health Affairs Web Exclusives. To reach a broad Washington policy audience, the Fund and the Alliance for Health Reform will organize a Capitol Hill briefing.
