Partner in the EUPHA PHIRE project
The Injury Section was a partner in the Public Health Innovation and Research in Europe (PHIRE) Work package 4 ‘Defining Tracer fields and evidence.’ The objective of this project was to contribute to the improvement of public health knowledge and practice across the EU by exploring what has been the uptake of knowledge from public health actions under the first Public Health Programme (PHP), funded in 2003-2005 at national level across Europe.
Our task was to identify a trace project within the first PHP, the CSAP - Child Safety Action Plans, Phase I (No. 2003315), and to assess the uptake of the results of this tracer project in EU Member states through country informants. The PHIRE project was presented at the EUPHA Conference in Copenhagen.
