This report demonstrates the benefits for future health policy performance related to a close connection between health monitoring activities and the implementation of health objectives. Health reports are basically useful for setting up and quantifying health targets, for the construction of target-related measures and evaluation procedures. On the other hand health objectives can be regarded as landmarks for the allocation of health monitoring resources. Deriving appropriate results for health policy makers from data collecting activities, health statistics, and related health reports could be more effective if these activities were connected with an elaborate health target programme. An interactive unit or working group of health target workers and health monitoring professionals is to guarantee optimum interaction between future health practice, research and policy.
