=E2=80=A2 WHO Family of International Classifications (WHO-FIC):
W= HO, in collaboration with national and international partners, has develope= d an integrated suite of health and health-related classifications. Interna= tional Classification of Diseases (ICD) and International Classification of= Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) are the two main reference classi= fications. WHO will enhance use of ICD in most high mortality countries and= carry out revisions, updates and development of e-health applications.
=E2=80=A2 Health and mortality classifications: specific updates and too= ls to enhance dissemination and use, as electronic training, planning the r= evision strategy.
=E2=80=A2 Contribute to the improvement of the Inte= rnational Classification of Occupations for health related occupations in c= ollaboration with the International Labour Organization.

WHO Study on Global Ageing and Adult Health (SAGE)

=E2=80=A2 WHO has launched a study of health and health-related outcomes= and their determinants in older adults in six countries in nationally repr= esentative samples. The study has been designed as a longitudinal cohort st= udy and includes health examinations and biomarkers. Field work is complete= d in 4 countries and will be completed in the remaining two countries by Ap= ril 2010.
=E2=80=A2 Data sets from these studies will be made availab= le in the public domain in 2010.
=E2=80=A2 The study will be extended= to three additional countries in Europe in 2010. Possible extension to add= itional countries are continuing to be explored.

Other survey related activities

=E2=80=A2 WHO will work closely with the International Household Survey = Network (IHSN) and international experts to develop a standard set of modul= es for use in health interview surveys for priority health outcomes. A meet= ing is planned in January 2010 to start the process.
=E2=80=A2 A set = of health examination surveys are being undertaken in the Gulf Cooperation = Council countries building on the World Health Survey. Five of the surveys = have been completed. These surveys will also develop new measurement strate= gies.
