National Register of Abortions (NRPOT)

PURPOSE OF DETECTION OF REQUESTED DATA

The purpose of detection of the requested data is to secure data for assessment of quality of care for reproduction health. Collection of data concerning abortions in the Czech Republic became a longtime tradition and an indispensable component of demographic and perinatologic  information on Czech population. Anonymised data are transmitted with monthly periodicity to Czech Statistical Office for the needs of demographic statistics.

Analysis of the data provides a series of internationally recognised criteria of quality of care and quality of health and provides an indispensable complement to other perinatologic data without which it is not possible to make complex assessment of the quality of the care for reproduction health.
