InfluenzaNet is a system to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet. It has been operational in The Netherlands and Belgium (since 2003), Portugal (since 2005) and Italy (since 2008), and the current objective is to implement InfluenzaNet in more European countries.

In contrast with the traditional system of sentinel networks of mainly primary care physicians coordinated by the European Influenza Surveillance Scheme (EISS), InfluenzaNet obtains its data directly from the population. This creates a fast and flexible monitoring system whose uniformity allows for direct comparison of ILI rates between countries.

Any resident of a country where InfluenzaNet is implemented can participate by completing an online application form, which contains various medical, geographic and behavioural questions. Participants are reminded weekly to report any symptoms they have experienced since their last visit. The incidence of ILI is determined on the basis of a uniform case definition.

Hora do Sol saudável

A Hora do Sol Saudável é um projecto de carácter pedagógico promovido pela Liga Portuguesa Contra o Cancro, com o apoio da Garnier Ambre Solaire, junto da comunidade escolar, mais precisamente de alunos do 1º Ciclo do Ensino Básico – público e privado – que decorre entre 11 de abril e 16 de maio de 2016. 

A ideia é ser criativo e recriar o video clip dos D.A.M.A. que alerta para os riscos da exposição solar sem protecção. Aqui pode encontrar o regulamento.

Numa altura em que o Verão está à porta e já começam a surgir dias "de praia" é muito importante não esquecer os cuidados a ter.
