In 2003, a small working group was established under the leadership of WHO and the World Bank to develop a strategy to assist countries (especially those with limited resources) to better monitor and evaluate their health systems. Initial discussions focused on identifying a parsimonious set of indicators and related measurement strategies.

It proposes a core set of indicators and related measurement strategies that can assist countries, global health initiatives and other stakeholders to monitor and direct investments into health systems.
