Common methods and instruments for health interview surveys in Europe : report of the WHO EUROHIS mid-term review, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2-4 November 2000
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2001 )
Abstract

While countries collect data on health to monitor the effects of health policy, the lack of coordination in the development of survey instruments hinders international comparisons of the results. The WHO Regional Office for Europe, working with 54 organizations in 35 countries in the WHO European Region, is tackling this problem through the project on common health interview surveys in Europe (EUROHIS). Within the current phase of the project, planned to end in December 2001, and co-sponsored by the BIOMED2 programme of the European Commission (EC), the EUROHIS Mid-term Review was held to examine the progress made in developing common instruments for seven indicators and decide on the action to take to complete the project. The participants discussed the draft instruments and agreed on the changes required. They recommended further field-testing for these instruments, along with those of the previous phases of the project, and their implementation, preferably as a group, in countries' health surveys. Finally, they asked WHO to urge all European Member States to use the final package of instruments in their health surveys

European regional consultation on the introduction of second-generation HIV surveillance guidelines : report on a WHO consultation, Copenhagen, Denmark 14-15 November 2000
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2001 )
Abstract

The rapid spread of HIV infection necessitates the introduction of sensitive methods not only for monitoring the transmission of the disease but also for possibly predicting where the infection might appear in particular areas or population groups. The Consultation brought together experts in HIV surveillance from the countries of central and eastern Europe to discuss the introduction of the second-generation surveillance guidelines developed by WHO headquarters. These guidelines recommend the introduction not only of case reporting and prevalence studies but also behavioural surveillance in order to monitor HIV-associated risk behaviour and thus to predict where HIV infection could spread. They also highlight the additional support to risk assessment that could be gained from the surveillance of sexually transmitted infections. The Consultation reviewed available experience from ongoing surveillance systems in some European countries, and made important recommendations on the introduction of second-generation surveillance guidelines. This should be done through a series of training seminars, by revising national surveillance protocols, and by integrating HIV surveillance into existing national health surveillance systems
