Health care expenditures are on the rise for numerous reasons. At the same time short term austerity measures and long-term financial sustainability issues impose tough trade-offs between different spending categories. In this OECD-Bruegel event Joaquim Oliveira Martins and Christine de La Maisonneuve presented a new OECD-report on health and long-term care expenditures projections over the next 50 years. Based on this input, a panel consisting of Rodrigo Moreno-Serra (Imperial College), William Dorling (Pfizer), Christoph Schwierz (DG ECFIN) and the authors of the OECD report discussed the challenges arising from the projected health care spending for public finance and how they can be addressed.

This event was organised jointly by Bruegel and the OECD
