[Editorial] Health in the European region: time to act on the evidence

In 2012, the WHO Regional Committee for Europe designed the Health 2020, a policy framework that championed the enhancement of Europeans’ health and wellbeing and the improvement of health equity throughout the region. The ambition was to generate health information and evidence for individual European countries that could guide public health efforts within the countries’ cultural and political contexts towards key health targets. The European Health Report 2018: More than numbers—evidence for all, published on Sept 11, 2018, delivers the WHO Regional Office for Europe’s most recent update on progress made towards achieving the Health 2020 targets relative to 2010 baseline data.
