Bull's eye or Achilles'heel : WHO's european health for all targets evaluated in the Netherlands.
This report evaluates the achievement of the 38 health targets formulated by the World Health Organization in the European region.
These targets - which represent the european elaboration of the global « Health for all by the year 2000 » (HFA 2000) call of the WHO - were endorsed in 1984 by all European countries.
For practical reasons, however, this evaluation is based on the data for one country : the Netherlands.
Although restricted to dutch data, the discussions, conclusions and recommendations have been placed in a wider perspective, whenever possible.
The main conclusions from this evaluation are that this strategy of WHO Europe has been an important stimulus for the development of health policies.
However, the 38 Health for All targets are too ambitious.
Not many will be achieved by the year 2000.
The values and principles of the Health for ALL strategy as well as the policy of setting health targets should be retained, but revision of the targets is urgently needed.
