Abstract [en]

Monitoring and evaluation within the area of social welfare and public health comprise theoretical and methodological challenges [1, 2]. Indeed, current approaches may fail to consider essential aspects and to capture the broad spectrum of beneficial impacts from interventions. Therefore, we propose a novel measure taking into consideration the concept of capabilities: capability-adjusted life-years (CALYs). This commentary suggests principles, reflecting the Swedish context, to build the measure on. Of course, years of empirical research and refinement remain.
