[Editorial] Austerity in Spain: time to loosen the grip

Calculating the health impact of a financial crisis and subsequent austerity measures is an inexact science. A new UN report, published on April 25, 2018, illuminates the repercussions on health care of the 2008 monetary crisis, state retrenchment, and the implementation of a royal decree in Spain, echoing findings of an earlier European Commission 2017 Country Health Profile. The consequences and patient perceptions of Spain’s emergency rescue package in the wake of the financial crash were also analysed in an Amnesty International document, published April 24, 2018.
