The European Injury Data Base (IDB) is a data source that contains standardized cross-national information on the external causes of injuries treated in emergency departments (EDs) in the EU. The database provides information on accidental injuries such as home accidents, sports and leisure injuries, workplace accidents and road accidents and on injuries due to violence and self-harm.

As injuries are an important and largely preventable health problem, the IDB provides users with relevant information for public health and consumer safety policies and actions within the EU.

The currently available IDB-data are produced voluntarily by member states in the framework of temporarily projects co-funded by the EU-Health Programme. The EU-database is hosted by the European Commission, DG Sanco, to provide central access to data delivered by the participating countries. All information about IDB provided at this web-gate can be also downloaded as brochure.

IDB project is co-funded under the EU-Health programme and managed by Eurosafe. Information available on this page was produced by Eurosafe.
