  • From the abstract: While population health monitoring, as presented in this book, qualifies as one key approach to using information and evidence for health policy-making, additional organized approaches are frequently used at the interface of (health) science and (health) governance … In order to support decision-making, different kinds of policy questions are being asked here; and different health assessment approaches to answer such questions are being pursued. This chapter aims to provoke fruitful and inspiring comparisons between population health monitoring and other types of assessments. It covers definitions, goals, procedures, and methods of such assessments, in a comparative way. It outlines practical examples, describes how various assessment types relate to population health monitoring, and sketches current and future developments. The chapter is based on collaborative work carried out within the EUPHA Initiative on Health Assessments (Fehr et al. 2017).
  • Chapter keywords: Science-governance interface, Health needs assessment, Health impact assessment, Health technology assessment, Health systems performance assessment, Programme evaluation, Economic assessment.
