Critical to the achievement of EUthyroid’s lofty goals are the many organisations providing registry data, conducting harmonised studies to EUthyroid standards or contributing to the various additional activities pursued as part of the project. 57 organisations from 25 countries participate in EUthyroid as associated parties working towards the realisation of these aims.
EUthyroid is building up infrastructures supporting population studies to monitor the iodine status and the prevalence/ incidence of thyroid diseases. Improving the validity of study findings will enhance the acceptance of our research and will facilitate decisions of national bodies to regularly monitor IDD prevention programmes. In this regard, EUthyroid follows the vision of improving iodine and thyroid epidemiology on a global scale. EUthyroid started with European partners, but is already reaching beyond the continent. Any institution involved in IDD monitoring is cordially invited to become associated with EUthyroid!
