The main objectives for compiling this inventory were as follows: 1. To identify indicators currently in use, and routinely published across different countries; 2. To identify indicators that are well-recognised and accepted across different countries; 3. To identify indicators that have been recognised by experts and tested for scientific soundness; 4. To identify the key domains and/or frameworks used to conceptualise child well-being across different countries; 5. To identify the key criteria used to guide the selection of child well-being indicators across different countries; and 6. To provide a resource for others who may be embarking on a similar type project. This research contributed to the development of a National Set of Child Well-Being Indicators for Irish Children.

Right to health, child survival and indicators

The right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest
attainable standard of physical and mental health

Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health

In his preliminary report to the Commission on Human Rights (E/CN.4/2003/58), the Special Rapporteur observed that a State needed indicators and benchmarks if it was to monitor the progressive realization of the right to health.

In his first interim report to the General Assembly (A/58/427), the Special Rapporteur outlined a methodology for the use of indicators in relation to the right to health. In section IV of the present report, he experimentally applies this methodology to one vital element of the right to health: child survival.

Report of the Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health

The Commission on Human Rights requested the Special Rapporteur to explore health impact assessments. Section III of the present report outlines a study he co-authored on that issue. It sets out a right-to-health impact assessment methodology and argues that such impact assessments are an aid to equitable, inclusive, robust and sustainable policymaking.
