The Department of Epidemiology (DEP) develops its activities in the fields of research and observation on the health status of the population living in Portugal, their determinants and use of health care in order to provide evidence for decision in Public Health.

To achieve its goals DEP develops and applies epidemiological, statistical computational and geographical information methods that are used by a specialised scientific and technical staff, working, usually in multidisciplinary teams.
