Published in Health Affairs in November, the survey, conducted in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, looked at such issues as access, affordability, and insurance complexity.

The 90-minute webinar examined key survey findings, with commentary and perspective provided by leading experts from France, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
