Health Indicators

The Health Indicators provide concise information of the health situation and trends, including responses at national and global levels. They reflect indicators of relevance for country, regional and global reporting across the full spectrum of global health priorities. This section includes an excerpt of a country-tailored list for monitoring health status in Lebanon. This list will be a “dynamic entity”, updated periodically as more indicators are added, technologies develop and new priorities emerge. The following summary tables represent the best available country estimates of some indicators:
