    [Données et information sur la santé des femmes dans l'Union européenne]
    This report “Data and Information on Women’s Health in the European Union” provides a short overview concerning women’s health.
    This report provides an overview of the main topics, as a necessary first step for further work. Of course, much more could be done in all the areas covered for example in the mental health area on “violence against women”, or in the lifestyle areas on smoking and alcohol.
    Nevertheless, this report provides an overview of issues related to women’s health across the EU Member States also including EEA countries. It highlights gaps and special topics where research and more information are needed.
    Some of the principal findings of this report are the following:
    - The main causes of death in women in the EU and EEA are cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer,
    - Women are particularly affected by mental health problems such as depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s,
    - There is a great need for further research into how certain diseases affect women in particular.

    The third edition of “Injuries in the European Union”, based on data from 2005-2007, is an up-to-date summary of the main results of current injury statistics and surveys at the EU level. Recent hospital based data from the EU Injury Database (IDB) is combined with European injury data from international data providers, such as Eurostat and WHO, in order to give a comprehensive overview of injuries in Europe.
    The report focuses on the following injury hotspots: children, adolescents, older people, vulnerable road users, sports injuries, product and services related accidents, interpersonal violence and suicide and self-harm. The degree of information on each injury hotspot depends on the availability of data from the respective data sources which, in most cases, is restricted to just age and gender. For more information on the environmental, social and behavioral determinants of injuries, as well as prevention measures, reference is made to prominent “EU Initiatives” for each of the hotspot areas.
    The 2005 to 2007 data used in the report mostly concerns a 3 year average and either covers all 27 EU member states as is the case with mortality data, or is assumed representative of the EU-27 as is the case with the IDB data. Exceptions and information about the data sources used are stated in the Annex. The data was extracted in August 2009.

    Reports with data from the European Injury Data Base (IDB) are available on the EUROSAFE website.
