PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Since the publication of our article we have noticed an error in endnote 'a' for which the corresponding author accepts full responsibility. The endnote 'a' should state: Also the majority of EU member states disconnected on national level the Ministry of Health from Social Affairs. Examples of countries with a combined ministry at the time of writing are Estonia, Finland, France, and Sweden.
