SummaryPHAMEU (Primary Health Care Activity Monitor for Europe) is a research funded project by the European Community under the Public Health Action Programme (2003-2008). The PHAMEU project is coordinated by NIVEL (Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research) and involves a network of institutes and organisations from 10 member states. Overall, PHAMEU aims to establish a sustainable health information and knowledge system on the state and development of primary care systems in Europe. More specifically, PHAMEU will monitor the degree of development of primary care systems by means of a measurement instrument that is applicable to all national situations in Europe and that is able to capture the essential elements of primary care. The measurement instrument will be developed, implemented and will have two complete data collection rounds in all participating countries. This will result in a validated instrument producing up-to-date primary care information. The PHAMEU project will cover the 27 European Union (EU) member states, one EU candidate country (Turkey), and three members of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) (Iceland, Norway and Switzerland). PHAMEU will result in a primary care monitoring instrument providing country descriptions, international comparisons, trends in primary care and implications for primary care policy. The project will create an infrastructure for repeated application of the monitoring instrument. Recommendations will be made for policy makers, including models of good practice and future monitoring of primary care. Results will be disseminated to policy makers, communities of professionals and researchers, and to the general public
