[Editorial] Europe in 2015—health in a diverse and changing region

The European health report 2015, released on Sept 23, assesses the health and wellbeing of people in the 53 countries of WHO’s European Region. The report evaluates progress towards specific targets and holistic ambitions for health in the region, updating its most recent predecessor in 2012 and presenting achievements in the ongoing Health 2020 programme. Home to some 900 million people, the region comprises western European countries, many with high-quality health provision, and states with rather different health challenges such as Russia and Turkey.
