Mission

Our mission is to enable rapid sharing of trusted and open public health data to advance the response to infectious diseases.

Press

Today an informal network of hundreds of volunteers has assembled records for more than a million cases in 142 countries around the world. It may well be the single most accurate portrait of the virus’s spread through the human population in existence.

Who We Are

Global.health is a collaborative effort by technologists and researchers from leading international institutions to build a trusted, detailed, and accurate resource of real-time infectious disease data.

 

As research becomes increasingly data-driven, our understanding of the world around us is only as accurate as the data we have available. We believe in equitable health research that serves communities of all backgrounds. This is why we built Global.health – a platform that brings together outbreak data from diverse communities and makes it available to all, regardless of geographic location or organizational affiliation.

 

 
What We Do

By creating a centralized open resource of verified case-level data from around the world, our aim is to accelerate the work of researchers, public health officials, and the global community to better prepare for, respond to, and reduce the burden of disease outbreaks. We hope that this work will help cultivate a global community invested in improving health outcomes for all through open and secure data sharing.
