This chapter is intended to identify key principles involved in assessing the health of a defined population, rather than individual health status. It should help identify some techniques and approaches that can be applied in practice. Good health assessments require skills in epidemiology and information management and analysis; synthesis of information and opinion from a range of sources; leadership, political and partnership working, and persistence.
