Health registries have been set up following other disasters and are valuable tools that allow public health to track and investigate possible trends in illness and recovery and help develop guidelines for reducing injuries in future events. The Registry is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. A large number of universities and healthcare institutions are scientific advisors and/or collaborators. </div> www1.nyc.gov
