[Summary]. With a view to contributing to the design of a system to monitor the health status of women and sex differentials in health, the present document provides a summary of some of the characteristics of health situation assessment, in general, and of assessment of the health situation of women and of sex differentials in health, in particular. It is stressed that selection of the data to be gathered and analyzed should be preceded by a definition of the health problems on which action is to be taken. Three criteria are illustrated for the selection of health problems to be monitored. Certain general characteristics of the indicators are discussed.
