2019 Special Report - EU SAIs focus on health expenditure: Audit Compendium of the Contact Committee

Dec 19, 2019

Graphic - Public Health

Each year, EU Member States invest billions in citizens’ healthcare. Public authorities face the challenge of spending funds on medical and dental services, drugs and medicinal products and the expansion of digital services in the healthcare sector. For this reason, EU SAIs also place focus on health expenditure. By means of their audit work, the EU SAIs helped to contribute to a proper and efficient use of the scarce public resources in the health sector.

The European Court of Auditors, the German SAI and 22 other EU SAIs have compiled and summarised selected audit findings on Public Health in the Audit Compendium and published them in December 2019 (in English, German and French).

  • Part 1 provides an overview of EU and Member States’ health policy.
  • Part 2 summarises shared observations of EU SAIs.
  • Part 3 contains exemplary audit observations. The German SAI contributes its observations on “Health research needed to study the value of orthodontic treatment”.

The “Audit Compendium” series is a product of the Contact Committee of the Heads of EU SAIs. For further information, please click here.
