Promoting evidence-based reforms on medical deserts

oases

OASES is a 3-year long research project co-funded by the Health Programme of the European Union, led by a consortium of European partners.

OASES intends to become a source of knowledge on European medical deserts carrying out an analysis of medical desertification in Europe. Findings from the implementation of various pilot studies will provide insights, useful cases and evidence on possible measures to mitigate desertification, which can inform policy makers to enhance their healthcare reforms and workforce policy capacities.
