Target 35 of the 'Health for All' strategy states that "member states should have health information systems capable of supporting their national strategies for Health for All".
In Rorterdam a local health information system has been developed which aims to:
Monitor the health situation and related factors in the city of Rotterdam at district and neighbourhood level;
Contribute to the development of a local health policy for reducing the noted differences in the health situation of the population.
Information is collected from various sources including:
data on mortality and morbidity and statistics concerning health related areas like housing, employment, traffic, environment, etc.;
data collected from the population itself;
ideas and views of key informants;
The article outlines the design of the system, gives a review of the information stored and presents some of the results.
