Suggestions for improvement
   Good to establish a catalogue of global core health indicators
    for country use
   Definitions of indicators be provided to facilitate international
   Need to resolve the issues of data accuracy (normally several
    conflicting figures on same indicator within country)
   Develop core health dataset including health MDG indicators
    for long term monitoring & evaluation
   Improve mortality reporting thro MOH where vital registration
    is weak
   Use country website for validating & updating indicators
    where possible
