Latest 2015 indicator reference list now available.

Global Reference List of 100 Core Health Indicators

The Global Reference List of 100 Core Health Indicators is a standard set of 100 indicators prioritized by the global community to provide concise information on the health situation and trends, including responses at national and global levels. At the country level, it will be a cornerstone in moving towards all partners using one country-led platform for information and accountability. It will be reviewed and updated periodically as global and country priorities evolve and measurement methods improve.

Here is the 2015 version. You can search for indicators meta data here.

Ways forward

Following the finalization of the list, the next important steps are:

  1. Measurement and Accountability for Results in Health Summit, Washington DC, 9-11 June 2015, Washington DC
  2. Work, supported by IHP+, in countries to jointly strengthen national monitoring and evaluation frameworks and move towards all partners using the same platform for information and accountability.

Background to the indicators

At the informal meeting of global health leaders in New York on September 24, 2013, it was decided to make a concerted effort to achieve concrete progress on one of the IHP+ Seven Behaviours, namely monitoring progress jointly. A Working Group on Indicators & Reporting Burden was established. It consisted of senior focal points from the participating global health agencies, and was chaired by WHO’s Director General, Margaret Chan. Under the leadership of WHO and the World Bank the technical work is being taken forward, with support from IHP+.

A meeting of the IHP+ Working Group on Information and Accountability (previously the M&E Working Group) and the Working Group on Indicators and Reporting Burden on 27-28 August 2014 in Geneva issued an Outcome Statement and agreed on a list of core indicators.

The Global Health Agency Leaders reviewed this progress on 24 September 2015, in New York. They endorsed the meeting outcome statement, committed to promote the use of the list of core indicators and to make further progress on rationalising global reporting requirements.
