Debate about how to obtain the statistics needed to monitor the health of the population has been stimulated by a resurgence of interest, both nationally and locally, in public health.
At the moment, it is clear that data systems are not up to the task.
Existing national data collection systems are largely concentrated on measuring mortality and monitoring the activities of health services.
Thus, work done so far has had to rely on proxy indicators of health, rather than those which would be recommended ideally.
In the face of this, central government has started to discuss how to monitor and promote the health of the population.
