BRIDGE-health: BRidging Information and Data Generation for Evidence-based Health Policy and Research

The BRIDGE Health project aims to prepare the transition towards a sustainable and integrated EU health information system for both public health and research purposes. It includes 31 partners in 16 countries.

About the project

The project bridges the best of EU projects in domains of population and health system monitoring, indicator development, health examination surveys, environment and health, population injury and disease registries, clinical and administrative health data collection systems and methods of health systems monitoring and evaluation. BRIDGE Health is supported under the EU action of the Public Health Programme implemented by the Consumers, Health and Food Executive Agency of the European Commission.


  1. ensure sustainability of key health information activities that have been run under the past EU-health and research framework programmes and enhance synergy among these activities;
  2. enhance the transferability of health information and data for policy and improve the utility and use of data and indicators for stakeholders in policy making, public health surveillance and health care;
  3. reduce health information inequality within the EU and within MSs;
  4. develop a blueprint for a sustainable and integrated EU health information system by developing common methods for standardization of health information gathering and exchange between population health and health systems information within and between Member States
