Greece ranks highly in the Policy Context category, with its score based on strong tobacco control laws (the second highest after Sweden) and the existence of comprehensive severe asthma guidelines. However, Greece is among the lowest scorers in terms of Access and Care Coverage. This is mainly due to a low uptake of telemedicine and digital therapeutics, as well as minimal access to FeNO. Greece also scores highly in health systems characteristics due, in part, to a low number of asthma-related hospitalisations and average number of days spent in hospital. Greece’s Disease Burden score is only slightly better than the average.
