Models of child primary health care vary across Europe. There are three categories, primary care paediatricians, general practitioner based, or mixed. This paper describes the metadata schema used in the profiling process of candidate data sources for appraisal for the Models of Child Health Appraised (MOCHA) project using the MOCHA International Research Opportunity Instrument (MIROI). The ten clinical indicators included: asthma, antibiotic stewardship, immunisation, rickets, diarrhea, epilepsy, depression, ADHD, enuresis and care of women during pregnancy. Our metadata allows us to identify data within included data sources concerning any of the 10 clinical indicators identified for comparative analysis within the MOCHA project. From the 30 countries we found a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 36 different databases for each indicator.
