This week Brookings launches Health360: The Latest Views on Health Policy, a new blog about solutions to health policy challenges in the U.S. and around the world.

As Ted Gayer, vice president and director of Economic Studies at Brookings, puts it in his introduction to the blog:

For decades, Brookings scholars have been on the case, across all five of our research programs: designing economic policies to support more effective use of health care resources, shaping responses to global health challenges, evaluating the role of politics and governance in health care reform, examining the lessons of health systems abroad, and analyzing regulatory policy to enhance transparency and affordability throughout the industry.

Health360 promises to tackle all of these challenges with scholarly insight and practical solutions.
