HIGHCARE & RELATED STUDIES

(cases diagnosed in 2011-14)

Thanks to the efforts done for the data collection and corrections, many articles were published by comparing data across Europe (see “European HR studies” list here below) or within single European countries (see “HR country-specific studies” list here below).
