Traduction en anglais : Local health reporting, the example of Nuremberg.
Taking the example of Nuremberg, a city of half a million inhabitants, the article illustrates how, despite very restricted resources, the local public health department was able to establish a series of health reports dealing with different topics.
Treatment of a number of topics was only possible through cooperation with the local university.
Initially two health reports were produced on a regional basis for the purpose of supporting health promotion in particular areas of the city.
Whereas the first report attempts to give a comprehensive picture of health relevant living conditions in a certain area, the second report concentrates on an analysis of the situation of children and young people in a different part of the city.
Another area of concern deals with the gathering of specific health related data.
The data from a pediatric health sentinel in Nuremberg were combined with data on climate and air pollution in the years 1995 and 1996.
Various dissertation topics were useful in the analysis of everyday public health data.
Most of these results have been published in a separate reader.
They include an analysis'of the reports regarding pregnancy counciling, standardised reports of the HIV antibody tests as well as an analysis of the causes of infant mortality based on death certificates.
Finally, a comparative study of basic health data from various cities is in progress.
It is hoped that this will offer a basis for an evaluation of the health situation in Nuremberg.
