From the World Health Organization-Europe:
HlthRes-DB provides a wide range of statistics on human and technical resources for health and offers data on non-monetary health care resources collected through the joint work of the Statistical Office of the European Union (Eurostat), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and WHO/Europe. It contains nearly 200 indicators on human and technical resources for health.
Human resources indicators
Indicators include the number and density of a wide range of health personnel (such as physicians, nurses, midwives, dentists, pharmacists and health care assistants), according to three different concepts (those practising, professionally active and licensed to practice).
Information on employment in hospitals and numbers of medical and other graduates is also available.
Technical resources data
Data include the number and density of hospitals and hospital beds, stratified by ownership of facility (public, non-profit-making private and for-profit private), in addition to the number of beds for long-term care.
HlthRes-DB also contains indicators on the availability of the following medical equipment: computed tomography (CT) scanners, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) units, positron emission tomography (PET) scanners, gamma cameras, digital subtraction angiography units, mammographs, radiation therapy equipment and lithotriptors.
Coverage and output options
HlthRes-DB contains data from the 53 Member States in the WHO European Region. It allows queries for country, intercountry and regional analysis, and displays the results in tables, graphs or maps, which can be exported for further use. To be updated yearly, usually in late summer, it is currently available in English. A Russian version will be released.
