Strengthening the Practice of Epidemiology in the European Community

  • J. Pemberton


This paper is concerned with the stage of development of epidemiology in the European Community (EC) in 1984. It describes some of the obstacles to further development and suggests some remedies. Although the study was confined to the EC the problems described are not peculiar to the EC and are, I believe, to be found in many countries.
