--> Injury prevention

The Public Health Programme (PHP - Public Health Program) supported by DG SANCO (Health and Consumer Protection) has injury prevention as one of its goals. In this context, a European hospital database on injuries was created and has been in operation since 1986: EHLASS, now called the EU IDB - Injury Database.

We are the developers of many management tools and operating systems related to the EU IDB. We know the basic structure of the European PHP mode of operation, its weaknesses and strengths. Furthermore, we have conducted studies to evaluate the database and participated in many projects in this area, whether as a partner of major European projects or as a project leader. We provide here below links to numerous project summaries.
