The two previous COVID-19 health interview surveys could each count on more than 40,000 participants, thank you for that! Today we launch our 3rd survey, which focuses on your experiences, your health and your wellbeing during the deconfinement. We hope that we can still count on your participation!

The COVID-19 health interview surveys in short

These surveys support scientists and policymakers to assess the impact of the coronavirus crisis. Sciensano regularly launches a new questionnaire to:

  • assess a number of specific topics (this time, for example, we are curious about how you experience the loosening of the confinement measures);
  • monitor the evolution of recurring topics, such as mental and social well-being.

Thanks to your participation we can evaluate trends in time and study various public health topics.
