Health targets have become a widely used
instrument to promote population health. We describe the experience in
England, where the use of targets has reached the most advanced stage
of development, and other European countries. The experience
demonstrates that targets may change the behavior of a health system,
probably to a larger extent than many other policy instruments, if
incentives are aligned correctly and if measures to deal with
unintended effects are put in place.
