The WHO Regional Office for Europe convened a joint meeting of experts on targets and indicators for health and well-being in Health 2020 to advise on the measurement framework and indicators for the targets already set for Health 2020 (including the one on well-being), and to determine the support needed by countries in the use of such a framework and for further development. The participants 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 well-being and proposed overall satisfaction with life as the core indicator of subjective well-being. They also reviewed the existing proposals for indicators for Health 2020, agreeing overall general principles for indicators. Finally, they recommended quantified targets (where appropriate) and a shortlist of indicators for consultation with Member States and the WHO Regional Committee for Europe.
