The Duke Health Measures have been developed and validated over the past 35 years in the Duke University School of Medicine Department of Family Medicine and Community Health as part of a long-term effort to measure and study the relationship between health and its determinants. The original initiative was measurement of health in terms of physical, mental, and social function, which are the principal components of health outlined by the World Health Organization in 1959.

The Duke Health Measures are comprised of the following instruments.
