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. More info about the network

An overview of the registered themes over the years can be found here (only available in PDF icon Dutch or PDF icon French).

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