Hungary’s score in Policy Context is just above average, despite lacking specific severe asthma guidelines and a limited level of alignment of national care guidelines with international guidelines. In addition, Hungary scores among the highest in terms of Access and Care Coverage. This is mainly due to a relatively high level of access to diagnostics and specialist and remote care, though missing data on access to medicines limits this assessment. Hungary’s score is among the highest in terms of Disease Burden. Hungary’s Health System Characteristics score could be improved by focusing in part on the high average number of days spent in hospital due to asthma.
