Description:
As Ireland exits its bailout, the experience of the Irish health system provides valuable insights into the opportunities and pitfalls of managing austerity. Ireland is being held up for prudent adjustment and austerity. Yet 6 years into the crisis, Ireland's economy is only just emerging from its second bout of recession, its debt to GDP ratio stands at about 120%, and its fiscal deficit, although falling, is still above the 3% European Union guideline.1 It is revealing to sift through the evidence and see how the Irish health system has adjusted to this macroeconomic environment, providing lessons for those who must embrace austerity.
