The WHO Regional Office for Europe, 2018
The practice of health systems performance assessment (HSPA) varies across the WHO European Region. Consequently, there is a need for baseline information about HSPA across Member States. This review summarizes HSPA domains and indicators used by Member States in their HSPA or health system-related reports. This brochure seeks to provide an overview of what HSPA is and how it can be used. High-level officials from Europe’s health ministries share how they found HSPA useful in their work, and experts who have put HSPA into practice provide their perspectives on the process and outcomes.
