CARE: Center for Culture-Centered Approach to Research and Evaluation is proud to share news that for the last five years, Prof. Mohan Dutta has served on the World Health Organization (WHO) expert group on #Culture & #Health.
The outcome of this collective work/report is titled, “Beyond bias: exploring the cultural contexts of health and well-being measurement”.
Abstract: This first expert group meeting on the cultural contexts of health and well-being was convened by the WHO Regional Office for Europe on 15–16 January 2015. As part of the adoption of Health 2020, the European policy for health and well-being, WHO Member States agreed to a measurement framework, which would measure and report on objective and subjective well-being. However, practical challenges remain, particularly with respect to the influence of cultural factors on well-being and well-being measurement. The aim of this meeting was to provide advice on how to consider the impact of culture on health and well-being, and how to communicate findings from well-being data across such a culturally diverse region as Europe. This report outlines the detailed recommendations made by the expert group in relation to each of these objectives.
