Description:
The four key principles guiding the development of the Health Strategy (2001): Quality and Fairness: A Health System for You are equity, people centredness, quality and accountability. High quality statistical data are fundamental to the delivery of each of these. Relevant, accurate and accessible information should inform all health decisions. This includes information for the public as well as data required to enable evidence-based service delivery and evaluation, policy formulation and the measurement of health gain. This compendium of health statistics brings together data from a wide variety of sources on demography, health status and the delivery of health services. It provides a broad overview of health in Ireland as well as serving as a resource and reference for those interested in particular aspects of health and the health services. The report's format continues to reflect the ongoing shift in emphasis from illness to the promotion of healthy lifestyles, the need for better information, particularly in the areas of health status, health risks and health determinants, and the continued development of community-based health services.
