Who is the National Node?

The National Node on Health Information is formed by national institutions that generate and use data and information for international purposes. It has a core team consisting of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM, secretariat), Statistics Netherlands (CBS) and the Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research (NIVEL). The National Node further consists of stakeholders that do not directly generate data, but instead use it for various purposes (such as policy development) or conceive the right conditions for such use (such as standardisation).
