Germany is located in Central and Western Europe and has a population of 80 million. The country’s S3 priorities include, digital economy and society: Intelligent mobility: Sustainable economy and energy: Civilian security: Innovative work environment and Healthy life. In the area of Health life there is a focus on combating common illnesses, individualized medicine, prevention and nutrition, innovative care, research on active substances and innovative medical technology.

Healthprofile according to the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD):

Germany spends more per person on health than other EU countries, providing a broad benefit basket, high level of service provision and good access to care. However, the system is fragmented among numerous payers and providers, leading to inefficiencies and diminished quality of care in certain care settings, and often reflected in average health outcomes. Recent legislation has emphasised long-term care, the supply and skills of care staff and improving the availability of services, especially in rural areas.
