The study is published alongside a commentary by Michael Robson "Known knowns, unknown unknowns and everything in-between the - the Ten Group Classification System (TGCS)". We also published a response to a letter called "International comparisons and holistic patient care".

COVID-19 AND PREGNANCY: Euro-Peristat network part of PHIRI
Euro-Peristat is part of the PHIRI project: PHIRI (Population Health Information Research Infrastructure) is a 36 months project funded by the European Commission. PHIRI builds on the achievements of the BRIDGE Health and the Joint Action on Health Information (InfAct) projects, which covered major EU health policy areas based on the past experience of European project on indicators. The project was launched in November 2020. It includes 41 partners in 30 countries. PHIRI's GOAL is to set up a research infrastructure to facilitate and generate the best available evidence for research on health and well-being of populations as impacted by COVID-19. PHIRI will allow for better coordinated European efforts across national and European stakeholders to generate the best COVID-19 population health knowledge.
