Expert Group on Health Systems Performance Assessment (HSPA)
In February 2014, the Council Work Party on Public Health at Senior Level invited Member States and the Commission to set up an Expert Group on Health Systems Performance Assessment (HSPA). The Expert Group was established in September 2014.
Assessing the performance of health systems is useful to properly understand how they work, and therefore to carry out actions to improve them. Performance assessment offers the transparency that is essential for securing accountability for health systems, thereby improving their functioning.
