The network of General Practitioners
The network comprises about 120 general practices all over Belgium, who weekly report data about 7 to 8 infectious and non-infectious diseases. This allows to study the incidence and prevalence of a variety of health problems and their characteristics. By providing epidemiological information as well as information on care provided in general practice, the SGPs support the policymakers in defining priorities and evaluating health policy.

This network is only possible through close cooperation with our partners.
