The Joint Action on Health Information InfAct (Information for Action!) is a 36 months project funded by the European Commission. It builds on the BRIDGE Health project and other initiatives in health information. The project was launched in March 2018. It includes 40 partners in 28 EU and associated countries.
Through country collaboration, InfAct streamlines health information activities across Europe. It builds towards a sustainable and solid infrastructure on EU health information and strengthens its core elements based on capacity building, health information tools and political support.

PHIRI’s goal is to set up a research infrastructure to facilitate and generate the best available evidence for research on health and well-being of populations as impacted by COVID-19. PHIRI will allow for better coordinated European efforts across national and European stakeholders to generate the best COVID-19 population health knowledge. In doing so, PHIRI will lay the foundation to build a Distributed Infrastructure on Population Health (DIPoH) to be used to overcome future crisis and ensuring the sustainability of the project. The intent is to support research across Europe through the identification, access, assessment and reuse of population health and non-health data to underpin public health policy decisions. This will be achieved through a close collaboration with 41 partners across 30 countries over a period of 36 months starting in November 2020. The project is divided in 9 ambitious work packages with three transversal topics. PHIRI builds on the achievements of the BRIDGE Health and the Joint Action on Health Information (InfAct) projects.
The Distributed Infrastructure on Population Health (DIPoH) aims to develop a Pan-European state-of-the-art Distributed Infrastructure on Population Health. DIPoH will strengthen the synergy in the EU by facilitating comparative population health research efforts through the identification, access, assessment and reuse of high quality, reliable and comparable population health data (health status, determinants and care use) across EU health systems. DIPoH contributes to meet current challenges facing our societies related to ageing, multimorbidity, health inequality and increasing health care cost.
