EURO-HEALTHY socio-technical approach, 2016

At the core of the EURO-HEALTHY project it is the development of a Population Health Index, a multidimensional measure which evaluates the population health at European regional level in a wide range of areas of concern, dimensions and indicators of health determinants and health outcomes. Underlying the construction of this measure, is the ground-breaking concept related to the multi- and trans-disciplinary approach, including the technical elements of a multicriteria value model and the social elements of participatory methods for involving and capturing the stakeholder points of view (including policy-makers).
