With this in mind we have developed a set of supporting indicators that help focus our understanding of how well we are doing. Indicators have been included that cover the full spectrum of what we understand public health to be, and what we can realistically measure at the moment. These outcomes reflect the focus we wish to take, not only on how long we live – our life expectancy, but on how well we live – our healthy life expectancy. Our focus is also on reducing differences between people and communities from different backgrounds.
