The WHO Oral Health "Country/Area Profile Programme" (since 2011, Country/Area Profile Project), - the "CAPP", was established at the WHO Collaborating Centre for Education, Training and Research at the Faculty of Odontology, Malmö, Sweden, in 1995. Before that, extensive consultations had taken place with the WHO Noncommunicable Diseases Cluster, Geneva, and with several WHO Collaborating Centres, organizations and individuals around the world. Our objective is to present information on dental diseases and oral health services for various countries/areas.
The WHO Global InfoBase is a data warehouse that collects, stores and displays information on chronic diseases and their risk factors for all WHO member states.
High quality health statistics are essential for planning and implementing health policy in all country settings. The Infobase assembles, for the first time in one place, non-communicable disease (NCD) risk factor data collected from WHO Member States. NCD risk factor data are crucial for predicting the future burden of chronic diseases in populations and also for identifying potential interventions to reduce the future burden. The Infobase online dissemination tool provides not only data but also health information to help users understand health enquiries worldwide and improve the health of nations.
Infobase promotes "transparency, accessibility and traceability" of health information. "Transparency" refers to the ability to easily understand health information and work with health data. "Accessibility" is the ability of all interested parties to easily access and contribute to the data within the Infobase. "Traceability" presents an "audit trail" for all data entered into the Infobase. It provides a resource for users to trace each data point to its original source.
The Infobase is a dynamic and an on-going project. All graphs, maps and data tables are generated by retrieving data from a regularly updated database.
