European Health Information Initiative (EHII) - Fourth meeting of the Steering Group




The WHO European Health Information Initiative (EHII) Steering Group held its fourth formal meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 22–23 March 2016. Launched in 2012 with start-up funding from the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport of the Netherlands, EHII is a multimember network committed to improving the health of the people of the WHO European Region by improving the information that underpins policy. This involves fostering international cooperation to exchange expertise, build capacity and harmonize data collection. Through these objectives, EHII contributes to integrating health information activities and developing an integrated, harmonized health information system for the Region. The Steering Group received and discussed background information and updates, and reviewed and offered advice on EHII’s strategic direction and action plan for 2015–2017.
