This report provides an explanation of a set of key health indicators for our population that give a balance of useful information across a range of important areas and that can be compared with other regions. Together these provide a snapshot of the overall health of the population of the island and highlight areas of success as well as emerging areas of concern.
As before the health profile will provide the basis for further analysis and targeted action where needed. Where there is variation there is always scope for improvement.
