The Injury Database (IDB) is an internet database set up by DG SANCO under the Injury Prevention Programme in 1999, in order to provide central access to the data collected in the Member States under the EHLASS Programme (European Home and Leisure Accident Surveillance System). IDB is the only data source in the EU that contains sufficient detail for developing preventive action against the rising tide of home and leisure accidents in Europe. The purpose of the IDB is to facilitate injury prevention in the Member States and at EU level - through trans-national aggregation and harmonization of data, and through reporting and benchmarking.
