The EURO-PERISTAT project’s goal is to monitor and evaluate maternal and child health in the perinatal period - pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum - in Europe using valid and reliable indicators.

The project began in 1999 as part of the EU's Health Monitoring Programme and has continued into a fourth phase with the ultimate aim of routinely producing data on perinatal health in Europe.

We developed a list of recommended indicators for perinatal health surveillance and published the first European Perinatal Health Report in 2008. Our second European Perinatal Health Report was published in May 2013.

The project is coordinated in Paris but has official representation from 29 countries across Europe and a large network of contributing experts. We receive funding from the European Commission Directorate for Health and Consumers and the Executive Agency for Health & Consumers.

We have recently been featured as one of the 20 successful projects funded by the EU Health Programmes; read more about us here.
