Development of environment and health indicators for European Union countries : results of a pilot study : report on a WHO working group meeting, Bonn, Germany 7-9 July 2004
AbstractFrom October 2002 to September 2004, the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health implemented the project "Development of Environment and Health Indicators for the European Union countries (ECOEHIS)". The meeting in Bonn, 7-9 July 2004 was convened to review the results of the pilot study, testing the feasibility and applicability of proposed indicators in countries participating in the project. Based on national reports as well as the review of international databases and reporting systems, the meeting recommended a list of "core" indicators ready for inclusion in the European Commission Health Indicators core set. The meeting also identified issues that require further developmental work in order to allow for a more comprehensive monitoring and assessment of environmental health policies
