The National Program for Disease Registries and Health Outcomes has been established in June, 2016. The program is aimed to develop a proper infrastructure for the establishment of disease registries across the country, and to support registries both financially and technically to be well-organized on the basis of international standards. Some specific objectives of the program are as follows:
Over the past two years, we have been involved in developing national guidelines and technical standards for the establishment of disease registries in Iran. In order to raise the knowledge of disease registries and registry-based research, we held several training workshops and private meetings with administrators and technical executors of registries throughout the country.
