The socio-economic indicators for health were chosen to communicate high-priority health issues and challenges. They will be monitored to address determinants of health that promote quality of life, healthy behaviors, and healthy development across all life stages. The indicators will be used to assess the health of the district population, facilitate collaboration across sectors, and motivate action to improve health to the lowest level in the community (household level).
The Leading Health Indicators were selected and organized using a “Health Determinants and Health Outcomes by Life Stages” conceptual framework. This approach was intended to draw attention to both individual and societal determinants that affect the public’s health and contribute to health disparities from infancy through old age, thereby will guide highlighting strategic opportunities to promote health and improve quality of life for all the people in Kyenjojo District.
