Targets and indicators for Health 2020. Version 4 (2018)




Health 2020, the European health policy, aims to improve the health and well-being of populations, reduce health inequities and ensure people-centred health systems. This document describes the steps taken to develop the Health 2020 targets and indicators through the work of two international expert groups and country consultation with Member States. Specifically, it gives an overview of the 20 core and 17 additional indicators adopted by the 53 Member States of the WHO European Region in September 2013 to measure progress with the six targets identified for Health 2020. The indicators are further specified in detailed technical notes. This publication also describes the monitoring framework and platform that will be used to track progress with the implementation of Health 2020 across the Region.
