Abstract

This report gives an account of applying a health survey tool by the Pomona Group that earlier documented the process of developing a set of health indicators for people with intellectual disabilities in Europe. The Pomona health indicator set mirrors the much larger set of health indicators prepared by the European Community Health Indicators group for the general population in Europe. The 18 indicators are classified under four categories: demographic characteristics, health status, health determinants, and health systems. After 3 years of collaborative project activity, key areas have been identified to heighten the visibility of people with intellectual disabilities in the public health domain so as to address evident health inequalities or disparities.
