HFA-DB is a central database of independent, comparable and up-to-date basic health statistics. It has been a key source of information on health in the European Region since WHO/Europe launched it in the mid-1980s. It contains time series from 1970.
HFA-DB is updated biannually and contains about 600 indicators for the 53 European WHO Member States. The indicators cover:
- Basic demographics;
- Health status (mortality, morbidity, maternal health and child health);
- Health determinants (such as lifestyle and environment);
- Health care (resources and utilization)
HFA-DB allows country and intercountry analyses to be displayed as charts, curves or maps, which can be exported free of charge to other software programs.
