out-patients with schizophrenia in different regions of the world.
Using data from the Worldwide-Schizophrenia Outpatient Health Outcomes
(W-SOHO) study we measured clinical and functional remission in
out-patients with schizophrenia in different regions of the world, and

outcomes. The 11 078 participants analysed from 37 participating
countries were grouped into 6 regions: South Europe, North Europe,
Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, North Africa and Middle East,
