Description:

A joint meeting of experts on targets and indicators for health and well-being in Health 2020 was convened by the WHO Regional Office for Europe. Its aim was to advise on the measurement framework and indicators for the Health 2020 targets already set by the Regional Committee (including for wellbeing), and to determine the support needed by Member States to implement such a framework and for additional further development. The meeting reviewed the definition of well-being agreed in the context of Health 2020; examined research data and existing guidelines on tools and indicators for measuring wellbeing; and proposed overall satisfaction with life as the core indicator of subjective well-being. The meeting also reviewed the existing proposals from the expert group on development of indicators for Health 2020, agreeing overall general principles for indicators, and recommended quantified targets (where appropriate) and a shortlist of indicators for consultation with Member States and the Regional Committee.
