Wismar, Matthias, McKee, Martin, Ernst, Kelly, Srivastava, Divya and Busse, Reinnhard (2008) Health targets in Europe: learning from experience. Observatory studies series no. 13 . The European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, Copenhagen, Denmark. ISBN 9789289042840
This book draws on a series of case studies on the use of health targets. It reviews the major technical, managerial and political challenges of defining and implementing health targets. While they help focus attention on agreed goals, to realize their potential they need to be based on evidence, accepted by those who work to achieve them, be embedded in frameworks of mutual accountability, linked to appropriate incentives and/or sanctions and supported by an adequate intelligence infrastructure.
