The Observatory

The National Health Observatory is an administration placed under the authority of the Minister of Health.

However, the National Health Observatory is scientifically and professionally independent in terms of its observation tools, findings and proposals.

The purpose of the National Health Observatory is to guide health decisions and policies and to assess their impact by interconnecting data (health status, health determinants, non-monetary resources and use of the health and care system).

In other words, the Observatory aims to generate information with the available data and to put this information into perspective (historical comparison, international benchmarking) in order to identify areas for improvement.

The law of 2 March 2021 creating a National Health Observatory specifies the Observatory's missions, its governance and its internal organisation.
