Conclusions and Recommendations
The present project was accomplished in the context of the development of a European Health Monitoring System. The main objective of this report was to build up a picture of data availability from routinely repeated or repeatable sources in European countries, which could inform policy makers. It was the intention of this report to provide a coordinated framework for Health Information Activities related to nutrition and physical activity, which were initiated between 1990 and 2006.
The results of this report show the great importance and the need for such an inventory. A multitude of Health Information Activities related to nutrition and physical activity have been entered into the database. The number of entered projects per country differs. Few national project entries were done by new European Union Member States as well as by candidate countries up to 2006. They were predominantly involved in European projects.
